We found this perfect little church open and there is a great deal to see and enjoy.
The west window.
The entrance to the church is through the tower which is located on the south side - so doubling as a porch. Here is the internal door and a view looking out from the porch through the ancient doorway.
This attractive piece of stained glass hangs in the window.
Here is a view of the interior, looking east into the chancel through the arch which was replaced by the Victorians.
There are medieval paintings above the chancel arch, mostly hidden by the ancient rood beam.
The east window contains a glass depicting the crucifixion. It was installed in memory of members of the Shaw family, for many years associated with this church.
The side windows of the chancel are filled with stained glass depicting saints and were installed in memory of members of the Cavendish family.
There is a piscina in the south wall of the chancel; can you spot the spider?.
This impressive monument dominates the north chancel wall.
Here is the view looking west from the chancel.
The tower/porch on the south side.
A final view of the south side of this fabulous building.
