Harrison's description (1911):

The church has E.E. nave and Dec. chancel, probably built by Sir John de Lewes about 1292, to whom there is a brass. The Dec. E. window is handsome, and there are several Perp. windows inserted. Note the two piscinæ; E.E. font; sedilia (restored); curious oak muniment chest in N. aisle (c. 1250); two chests in chancel; carved oak pulpit; brass to Rev. Bretellus Avenel (c. 1408); another too C. Savage (c. 1450); gargoyle over N. porch; and the clerestory windows on N. side. The position of low-side window, which has some old glass, at W. end of S. aisle of nave is uncommon. It is of late date and has an aumbry near it. S. of the chancel is the mortuary chapel of the Earls of Liverpool.

Under the cornice of the N. porch is a female figure, holding a churn, probably the device of the Allchorn family.
