There is some good Decorated tracery in the chancel windows, especially the east one. west tower, south porch, nave, south aisle and chancel. There are two small circular windows widely splayed on both sides in north wall of nave, which are pre-Conquest, as probably is the round tower. 14th century and 16th century arch-braced roof, arch-braced between wall posts and clerestory on both sides. This is an uncommon feature to find a clerestory without the aisle beneath it. Simple early 15th century font, mutilated bench ends and Stuart table. The gradulated sedilia with only two seats is unusual, having two large arches enriched wiuth dog and tooth mouldings and standing on columns, many thanks to Mr Roger Moore and his wife for the fantastic help on the day.
