In the chancel is a 2-chamber piscina with cusped heads on columns and ogee-headed sedilia to the right.

"Saint Matthew may date from the 11th century. In 1962 The Times reported that walling had been found west of the tower indicating where a former nave had been. The herringbone layering of the masonry suggested that an 11th-century date is likely. At the same time a pewter chalice from about 1200 was found."
