Features and Fittings
In the south wall of the chancel is a piscina with chamfered surround.
A brass plate on the base of the font reads:
The font is by George Walker Milburn (1844-1941), a carver and sculptor based in York, who worked on various fixtures and fittings at the church over the period 1878-79, including the pulpit, lectern, desk, bench ends, poppy heads and an oak book case.
The font cover is made from the same wood as the Mayflower II, a replica of the original Mayflower, which sailed from Plymouth to New Plymouth in 1957.
The wooden pulpit has blind tracery and commemorates Richard Hodgkinson of Morton Grange. It was installed during the restoration of 1877-78.
It was made by a prisoner from Ranby prison using approximately 14,000 matchsticks.
In the vestry are two benefaction boards, a wooden donations box and a metal box (made by C. Taylor of Retford) used for storing the parish registers:
