Fine spacious interior comprising broad nave aisles, chancel chapels, gallery and organ loft at west end; east end extended 1972 by addition of retro-choir designed by Sebastian Comper which contain a classical style baldachino. Splendid wrought iron screens, partly renewed and restored, across nave and aisles, the work of William Bakewell. Modern stained glass in chancel chapel windows by Ceri Richards.
