"To the Glory of God and in memory of her father John Hamilton of Fyne Court: Her husband Sir John Ch???? Ardagh RE: K.C.M.G.: KC.I.E: C.B.: L.L.D: Her brother John Hamilton her Sister ??? Kingscote. This window is erected by Susan Hamilton Lady Ardagh Countess of Almesbury A.D. 1913." The cross on the altar obscured the photo, preventing a perfect reading of the inscription.
The glass is by Morris and Company and depicts St Mary, Sai Mundi and St John.
The kneeling figures with the inscription: 'Orate p bono statu Alicie Reskemer,' and figures of angels in the south chancel window together with most of the heraldry in the nave window appear to be of 15th century Devonshire origin.
Also in the south chancel window are the two original canopies, kneeling donors, and early 16th century medallions. One of these depicts and eagle surrounded by the words from St John's Gospel: "In principeo erat verbu et verbu erat apud deu." Another contains the sacred monogram IHC.
In the north aisle are some sixteenth century lions' masks (no photo).
