removed, a pierced gallery rail and new seats installed and
the organ relocated. At the same time the tall arcade
columns which carry the gallery half way up were remodelled
to be circular rather than octagonal. They have moulded
bases, enriched octagonal capitals and carry 4-centred
arches. Coved plaster ceiling and stained glass. The organ
by S. Renn (1838) is in temporary storage.
