Furniture 

Among the furniture is the attractive Jacobean pulpit with its geometric mitred decoration, it lost the sounding board (which projected out above the head of the speaker) in the 19th century restorations. It was also moved back to its present position near the north pillar of the Chancel arch.

The Altar at the east end of the church is particularly interesting, being an 18th century table with cabriole legs and a marble top. The wooden reredos was erected in 1914.

Also intended as a memorial to those who fell in the 1st World War from the Church, is the octagonal fretted wooden pyramid font-cover with its carved angel. The brass eagle lectern nearby was presumably ejected from the crossing area of the nave. The Nave Altar was introduced by Rector Rev.L.W.Doolan.
