Three 15th century bench ends from the pews at the west end of the nave were reused in the pulpit, which was constructed in 1906. The central of these panels features a carving of a bishop, which is presumed to represent St Nicholas but may represent St Martin. The significance of the large goose is not known, though geese feature in the iconography of St Martin, with whom St Nicholas is often associated.
