The rather strange name comes from the Old English and is thought to mean 'the farm of Mugga or Mogga', an unknown Saxon who farmed here before the Normans came. Farming is still predominant in the area. Parts of All Saints Church date back to late Saxon times and it is fortunate in having three great treasures; the magnificent almost hollow yew tree in the church yard, is estimated to date back to Saxon times; the Saxon window in the west of the nave and the altar tomb in the Kniveton chapel. The altar tomb contains two splendid brass portraits of Sir Nicholas Kniveton and his wife Joanna.
