Lofty arcades with four two-light windows above, with plain arch-braced tie beam roof to nave. Nicely traceried heads to piscinas in both aisles and good 15th century windows. A few simple bench ends and a discarded pulpit standing on a modern base. The base of old coloured rood screen remains with an unreadable inscription on middle rail and eight good figure panels.
