moulded with segmental arch. The east wall is coped with kneelers and has
a C19 window of 3 cinquefoiled lights under a Tudor-arched head with

beams and with queen struts. At the east end of the south wall is a re-set
trefoiled piscina with hood. Opposite, projecting from the north wall, is
an elaborately carved stoup, again re-set. The pews were reconstructed in
the C19 restoration, but retain their carved ends, many of which are
carved with initials and with dates between 1688 and 1692.
