Chancel: to south chapel a chamfered plinth, buttresses with offsets and a diagonal buttress. To west and centre bays are square-headed windows of 4 trefoil- headed lights; the east bay is of 2 storeys (reflecting an earlier, probably C16, internal arrangement) with a square-headed mullion window of 2 lights to the ground floor and a square-headed window of 3 segmental-headed lights to the first floor.

North arcade: 3 mid C13 west bays of pointed double-chamfered arches on similar abaci, cylindrical piers, and waterholding bases. All 4 capitals retain original painted decoration of foliage scrolls and geometric designs, albeit faded. Hoodmoulds to both arcades. The 2 east bays to north and south arcades are by R G Smith: pointed double-chamfered arches on moulded polygonal abaci and polygonal piers and bases.

Set into the north wall of the south chapel is a small collection of Romanesque moulded and carved stones, including a sagittarius figure. At the west end of the present nave, between the clearly inserted tower arch and arcade responds, can be seen a small area of C12 ashlar. To north wall of the north chancel chapel is a brass to the memory of Dame Ann Percy, wife to Sir Henry Percy, died 1511. The second window from the west in the north aisle is by Morris and Co: it depicts Saint Anne, Saint Luke and Saint Agnes.
