West tower: a narrow slit window to lower stage, south side, a rectangular window with leaded lights to the west face, a slit window above. Belfry windows of 1 and 2 lights with stone louvres; a drip moulding between the stages and below the battlemented parapet which retains the line of a pitched roof on the east side. Boiler house between tower and north aisle with mullioned windows brought from East Deepdale. Interior: the inner door is probably C17, the boards fastened with square-headed nails and having strap hinges. The archway has plain jambs and a slight roll moulding to the round arch of 3 blocks. There are 2 steps down into the church which has a north arcade with octagonal piers and depressed two- centred double chamfered arches. The south arcade is round-arched, on octagonal piers with flat capitals. The painted rood loft is dated 1558, restored C20 and has a fine pierced east parapet with traceried arches, linen-fold panelling and 4-petal flowers on the friezes. The altar rail has widely spaced bulbous balusters; the pulpit has reused panelling dated 1641. The font bowl, probably C15, has reused quatrefoil recessed panels with bearded heads and incised fleur de lis motifs; the rounded stem may be earlier. N.
