The nave has mainly C14 windows and the south doorway, also retains its original 14th century door.The nave has a 7-bay hammer beam 15 century roof, The font,c.1400, has octagonal bowl with traceried panels. There is also a fine 15th century pulpit, each side carved with 2 ogee-arched panels and pierced quatrefoils below; the base is original. The reading desk re-uses late C16 carved woodwork.

As can be seen from the photos, the church sits in a large green in the centre of the village and repairs are being currently carried out to the roof, so there is scaffolding round the outside. This is temporary and shall be completed summer 2012.
