The font was set in the central aisle in 1769.

The oldest item in the church is an Early English piscina, found under some pews during the restoration of 1875-6 and is placed in the wall just inside the north door.

The Sedilla is particularly worth a look the carved arches are well preserved.
There is a rare medieval glass dated 1313.
Approximate Age of Artefact: 14th c
