Aisled windows, one with fragmentary stained glass, have marble sills. Chancel with apsidal
sanctuary set within round brick piers of ambulatory. The spandrels of the ambulatory arcade
gilded and painted with emblems. Tiled floor inset with panels by J R Clayton; choir stalls,
pulpit and font (raised on tiled and stone stepped plinth) to White's designs. Altar on stone
plinth behind low brass rails.
