History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
There is a lovely Georgian pulpit and a mass dial scratched into the wall. Speaking of scratches, look for the long grooves scored into the exterior walls; these are said to be the result of arrow sharpening in the 15th century, when archery practice was a required activity after Sunday services. Just inside the south door is an alms box carved from solid oak, which dates to 1673.
