There is a simple 15th century font and a small window over chancel arch. The Arms of George III and also those of Victoria in plaster. There is a great deal of ancient glass, mostly armorial and a chest with painted panels of saints. These are said to have come from the old loft screen, and probably did, but from their small scale, must have come from the roof loft.
