west window. Lower chancel has similar windows to south side:
small reset C12 window to north and Tudor arched doorway with 2-

Interior: walls are unplastered to nave, all apparently C19.
Panelled nave barrel roof has moulded ribbing and carved bosses,
all said to be survival from C17. C19 moulded pointed chancel
arch. Jacobean hexagonal pulpit. Bowl font with tall octagonal
base is recorded from 1680. Reset memorial stone to west end
