Chancel roof also replaced: king struts on collars, shallow pitch. Plastered ceiling over nave. Banner stave locker adjoining north door. Rood loft stair at north east corner. Good square headed screen, probably early C15 with panel tracery above crocketted arches : four bays on each side of central arched opening.
