Beside the right hand doorway are two slate headstones attached to the wall: One to John Southby. died 1771 aged 34, drowned by Accident and the other one to John Ralph, died 1795 aged 72. All the openings of the nave, 2 west doorways, 4 windows to both north and south walls and the wider east window were remodelled with pointed arches, mortar hoodmoulds and the windows were fitted with granite Y tracery. They were probably originally sashes. Interior retains the original shallow barrel or basket-arch vaulted ceiling but the fittings are late C19.
