The nave is divided from the sanctuary by a C17th screen of square panels surmounted by turned balusters. At its southern end is an octagonal pulpit, also of square panels, raised on a stone base. In the south wall of the sanctuary is a piscina with cusped head. Set into the stone flag floor are grave covers, including a C14th double sepulchral stone with 2 floriated crosses and inscriptions. The open timber roof has 7 trusses with short king posts rising off collars. Trusses 2 and 5, from the west, have tie beams, with carved central bosses.
