The interior is constructed without any pillars, making it a single, undivided space, with a span of 52 feet (16 m).[7] It was built in this way to give the congregation an excellent view of the chancel from the nave, and the ability to hear the sermon clearly.[4] At the west end is a small gallery.[8] The roof has a complex structure with rib vaulting. The vaulting is carried on octagonal shafts between the windows. On the sides of the chancel are two-bay arcades. The reredos is in stone, and consists of traceried panels, the outer ones of which are inscribed with prayers and other text.[1] The reredos and the font were designed by John Roddis of Birmingham.[8] The choir stalls, pews, organ case, altar, communion rails, credence table, and pulpit are in oak and were all designed by the architects.[8][9] The stained glass in the apse depicts scenes from the New Testament. It was designed by the architects and made by Clayton and Bell. The windows are dedicated to the memory of Thomas Greenhalgh's brother, Nathaniel. The stained glass in the east chancel windows is dated 1887 and depicts Faith and Hope; it was made by Burlison and Grylls.[9] The two-manual organ was built in 1881 by Isaac Abbott of Leeds.[9][10] The ring consists of eight bells, all cast in 1881 by John Taylor & Co of Loughborough.[11]
