Simple pointed-arch piscina in south sanctuary. Good C15 font, the panels of the bowl with mutilated carvings of the Seven Sacraments and the Baptism of Christ; angels to the underside of the bowl and a buttressed stem with cusped panels between. The font stands on a 2-stepped octagonal plinth, with a raised upper step in the form of a Maltese Cross and with panelled risers. Good set of 20 C15 poppyhead bench-ends in nave, 4 with carved arm-rests; 2 other detached benches have carved backs. The chancel stalls have further C15 poppyhead ends. On the nave walls are 3 C16 painted biblical texts with ornamental borders, one being painted over an earlier scene said to show the Entry into Jerusalem.
