Features and Fittings


Font Pulpit


The plain octagonal font dates from the 14th century. The font cover was presented by Enoch Bostock, a verger from 1887 to 1912.


The panelled square oak pulpit was placed in the church in 1906 by the parishioners in memory of the Rev. J. E. Phillips, vicar from 1879 to 1904.


The church contains three 'opus sectile' mosaic panels made by the stained-glass firm of James Powell & Sons. The panels were commissioned and funded by the Rev Canon J. H. Godber between 1897 and 1905.

Panel between the windows in the north aisle wall, showing angels with musical instruments (commissioned in 1897)
