Nave west end: chamfered window with 3 round-headed lights; to left a plain

remains of an Anglo-Saxon cross. Square double-arched bellcote to ridge.
Interior: round early C19 chancel arch on C12 jambs and double-chamfered
arch to family pew; double-chamfered pointed arches to arcade of north
aisle, the left arch blocked when the vestry was built into the west end of
the north aisle all except chancel arch on octagonal piers with moulded
capitals. The capitals, to the pier arches have raised motifs including the
Tau cross. Tomb of Sir William Stopham (d 1317) in the north wall of the
family pew: a ridged tomb with a cross-hilted sword; tomb of William
Vavasour (d 1587) under an ogee-arched recess in the chancel north wall.
Other memorials and hatchments to the Vavasour and Dawson families are in
the family pew and a fine stone plaque to William Vavasour (d 1820) is on
the chancel south wall. The nave contains a fine C18 3-decker pulpit with
sounding board against the south wall, box-pews, and a font with octagonal
stem and small bowl, the cover having a ball finial. The chancel is
underceiled with a moulded cornice, the nave has plain roof trusses. A
painting at Weston Hall dated 1789 shows the chancel roof lower that that-of
the nave. The alteration was probably made in the 1819 rebuilding, when the
chancel roof was probably raised. Country Life, Nov 13, 1958, p 1116.
