arched doorway to basement to left with zig-zag ornament, five

Interior: Vestibule at west end with stairs to west gallery.
Five-bay nave and chancel with 1-bay gallery; pine collar and tie-
beam trusses with queen struts and curved bracing, tie-beam with
painted biblical inscriptions. Large round-headed arch to apse
with attached shafts with stylised leaf capitals. All fittings
removed since church made redundant in 1973, currently undergoing
conversion (June 1985) to studios and dwelling which has altered a
formerly tiered gallery to an enclosed room on one level, nave to
be partitioned for studios. The building remains of special
architectural interest despite the change of use. Original paid
for by the Marchioness of Bath. (N. Pevsner, The Buildings of
England, Wiltshire, 1975.)
