The Font is of hard limestone and probably Norman. It is a circular tapering bowl with a large roll moulding round the bottom (recut at a later date) a stem and chamfered base. The font cover is made of wood and is of the 17th century. It is hexagonal with ogee brackets and central pendant.
The South Door is mounted with old strap hinges. Possibly 15th century.
The Tower Door leading to the spiral staircase in the tower is studded with nails and has cross-hinges. Probably 15th century.
The Pulpit is five-sided; panels, moulded rails and cornice dating from about 1700 A.D. The base is modern.
The Communion Table has turned legs and plain rails. 17th century.
The Washing Stand is made of 17th century panelling.
Two Small Oak Shields are located over the recess in the north wall of the Chancel, possibly part of the Rood-screen. The two have had coats of arms painted on them, the first coat in the 15th - the second in the 17th century.Travel Details: OS Grid Ref: SP705143
