The tall square tower has eight pinnacles, carved balustrade round the top and tall pointed windows with pillars.
Close to this on the wall is an unusual shaped memorial in the shape of a pillar dedicated to Jane Shipsea who died in childbirth aged 22 in 1626.
It is furnished with old wooden pews and has a carved altar rail and simple table altar. During the C18th this was a school room when the beautifully carved wooden screen separated it from the rest of the church.
This changed the way we register providers on the Early Years Register: most providers now do not have conditions of registration as the requirements they must meet are set out clearly in the revised Early Years Foundation Stage.
