leaded and stained glass window. Interior: a tower vestibule

incorporates reused C14 engaged octagonal responds, the C14

the arch are painted commandment panels. In the chancel south
wall a probably repositioned cusped piscina, with above and to

opening are probably in situ. The nave and chancel both have
plaster cornices. The altar has fluted legs and an early C20

supported on square Doric columns. The matching pews and pulpit
were altered in the C19 when the doors were removed. The large
C14 octagonal font bowl has ball flowers to the underside, the
stem is missing and it now rests on its base. In the sanctuary
is a C17 chair with carved back and arms. In the north wall is
an alabaster memorial in the classical taste dated 1619 to
members of the Sandon family of Reasby Hall, depicting 3 kneeling
figures in arcades with above an achievement of arms and below a
rectangular inscribed panel. All vertical members bear guilloche
decoration and beneath is a decorative panel bearing memento
mori, including a bone, scythe and spade.
