Harrison's description (1911):

Restored in 1858 and 1870. This church has a splendid Nor. chancel arch with mouldings of billet, lozenge, and zig-zag; over the arch is a lancet between two round windows. Note: Nor. squint with fluted shaft of black basalt; two trefoil-headed lancet low-side windows; piscina with shelf in E. wall of chancel; aumbry; low wooden aisle screen; fragments of black oak screen (14th c.); fragments of old glass in vestry, representing the Trinity; brass inscribed on both sides (1433 and 1673); fine Black Letter Bible (1613). The Nor. font is in the baptistery, which is entered through a semi-circular arch and lighted by lancets. The single pillar of nave is a massive cylinder, and has moulded square abacus and capital similar to those of St. Anne's Lewes, Beddingham, and Telscombe.
