 The Church Interior
  • The church was restored in 1864, and again in the 1876(?).
  • The font and a south arcade are Early English Gothic
  • From the chancel arch used to hang a maiden's funeral garlandand gloves cut out of white paper, a memorial to Mary Hill, a girl who died in 1814 as a result of an accident whilst ringing one of the bells.  These are now encased for protection and display, and a replica has been made to hang in the church.
  • The organ is a one manual organ by Joseph Walker, made in 1851 and placed in this church in 1869.  It is now in a Neo-Gothic case, probably since 1889 when the organ chamber was built.  The organ pipes are painted in a highly decorative pattern.
