window with leaded lights to the west face, a slit window above. Belfry
windows of 1 and 2 lights with stone louvres; a drip moulding between the
stages and below the battlemented parapet which retains the line of a
pitched roof on the east side. Boiler house between tower and north aisle
with mullioned windows brought from East Deepdale. Interior: the inner
door is probably C17, the boards fastened with square-headed nails and
having strap hinges. The archway has plain jambs and a slight roll
moulding to the round arch of 3 blocks. There are 2 steps down into the
church which has a north arcade with octagonal piers and depressed two-
centred double chamfered arches. The south arcade is round-arched, on
octagonal piers with flat capitals. The painted rood loft is dated 1558,
restored C20 and has a fine pierced east parapet with traceried arches,
linen-fold panelling and 4-petal flowers on the friezes. The altar rail
has widely spaced bulbous balusters; the pulpit has reused panelling dated
1641. The font bowl, probably C15, has reused quatrefoil recessed panels
with bearded heads and incised fleur de lis motifs; the rounded stem may be
earlier. N. Pevsner, Buildings of England, Yorkshire, West Riding, 1967,
