Modern roofs and benches, a typical 13th century Purbeck font, with shallow arcading standing on columns and good Jacobean pulpit with backboard and canopy, probably of the same date as the prayer desk which is dated 1619. The wall paintings are most interesting. There is a faint Saint Christopher, and seven panels on the south wall of the Seven Works of Mercy. All these had inscribed labels, and with a fresh application of wax I think many could still be deciphered, but most of the paintings can still be made out. They comprise Receiving the Stranger, Drink to the Thirsty, Clothing the naked, Succouring the cripples, Visiting prisoners, Visiting the Sick and Burying the dead. Over the tower arch is a large board with the Lord's Prayer, Commandments and Belief, probably 17th century. In the chancel there is an interesting double piscina, circa 1300, twice arched on column with sexfoil perforation above, and on the north wall a dropped window sill which may have been used as a priest's seat, but probably for an Easter Sepulchre. Over the piscina is a nice little monument to Edmund Anquish early 17th century.
