Contents

The villages name means 'Nook of land'. It has been suggested that the first element may be related to a late northern English dialectical, 'tewhit' meaning 'lapwing'. 'St. Margaret' from the church dedication. [4]

The church

The church of St. Margaret has a tympanum painted with the Royal Arms of Elizabeth I, some of the earliest in England, dating from 1587. [5] The huge arms, which stretch across the church, from wall to wall and from the top of the roodscreen to the roof, are flanked by the lion and the dragon. Beneath is painted "God Save Our Quene Elizabeth". The design includes the symbols of the other four Tudor monarchs, as well as the badge of Anne Boleyn, Elizabeth's own mother.

Beneath the arms, which have been recently restored, are Ten Commandments. [5]
