HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: 15th century Tropnell Chapel with stone screen
There is a very nice three-decker pulpit by the north nave window, with an attatched reading desk and clerk's desk. These were made in 1680 and were the gift of John Hall, the Lord of the Manor. A canopy was added over the pulpit in 1765, and a chapel (now the vestry) on the south side of the chancel was built by the Neale family of Shaw House in 1775.
On either side of the nave door are small 15th century consecration crosses, and in the centre of the nave is an 18th century brass chandelier, a gift from the Fullers of Great Chalfield Manor in 1914.
In the chancel are several medieval benches with carved poppyheads.
