coved cornice with Tudor flowers and cresting, missing to east side; door has
swan-neck hinges; panelling to north has some paint remaining, including halo;
small traceried canopy above is ex situ; table and incised game to bench relate
to pew's use as school. Smaller pew to east has bolection-moulded panels,

substantial remains of stained glass, thought originally to be from Cartmel

crucifixion and Christ appearing after resurrection, placed in north-east nave
window.
