The fontFont

Standing on a deep stone plinth at the west end, the font is a two feet high stone of early Decorated workmanship with rude columns and intersecting circular arches round it, the bowl being of a circular form and lined with lead.


Sets of kneelers and seat runners were provided by a local band of embroiderers led by Isobel Roadley of Laurel Farm. Their red colour together with that of the carpet was chosen to complement the red borders around the three lights of the east window before a stained glass window was donated by Parishioners to commemorate the Millennium.


A wrought iron door is fitted to the north door into the vestry. The solid south door has decorative ironwork.
