Chancel roof is a pointed barrel vault with painted decoration and nave has arched braced trusses. Dec style oak rood screen with central doors, chancel panelling, oak altar rails and simple oak choir stalls are all of 1946, given by parishioners to celebrate the centenary of the church, as recorded on a plaque to south of the rood screen.
