Tower still incomplete in 1429, possibly providing a date for the crenellated parapet. Lower stage of tower includes simple clasping buttresses, and elaborate Early English west doorway, all decorated with nailhead. North-east chapel has Decorated tracery. Nave and aisles early Perpendicular in style; steep 2-centred arches throughout, arcade upper mouldings carried upwards originally to foliated crockets. Nave east window over (low) chancel arch, on the Gloucester/Cirencester/Northleach model. Two clerestory windows per bay, on the East Anglian model. Unusual crenellations to tower parapet, linked by arches, on the model of Blyth (Notts). One monument of considerable art-historical importance to Thomas Fitzwilliam (died 1478) and his wife, removed from the Friary at the Dissolution. Probably circa 1530 and early English Renaissance in style. Alabaster. Tomb-chest with 2 reclining figures. Simple iron railings. Several wall tablets, including 2 good Baroque ones. Painted C18 Royal arms. Fine traceried wooden screen to north-east chapel. Perpendicular style, but with rather unusual detailing, perhaps C17. Traceried wooden pulpit, also perhaps C17. C14 or C15 stained glass in south aisle window, allegedly brought from Roche Abbey. Perpendicular panelled stone pulpit.
