In the east wall of the chancel is an aumbry and an Easter Sepulchre containing bellflower ornamentation.[1] The sepulchre contains traces of a wall-painting depicting Christ in Glory.[3] At the west end of the church is a gallery. On the walls of the church are painted benefactors' boards and Royal coats of arms. The nave contains box pews. The font is large and round, and was constructed from the base of a former Roman column.[1] Behind the font is a 13th-century iron-bound oak chest.[5] The carved wooden pulpit has five sides.[1] A wooden pedimented reredos hangs on north wall of the nave and is painted with the Lord's prayer, the Ten Commandments and the Creed. The stained glass in the chancel was designed in 1860 by E. Baillie, and depicts the twelve apostles and biblical scenes. In the north side of the nave are windows depicting saints; these were made in 1920 by Morris & Co. The largest memorial in the church is an alabaster tomb-chest carrying the effigies of Thomas Bromley, former Justice of the Queen's Bench, who died in 1555, and his wife. Other tomb-chests carrying effigies are those of Sir Richard Newport, who died in 1570, and his wife; and of John Berker and his wife, both of whom died in 1618.[3] On the wall of the chancel is a marble memorial to Francis Newport, 1st Earl of Bradford, who died in 1708.[1] This has been attributed to Grinling Gibbons.[3] The ring consists of six bells. The oldest is dated 1598 and was cast by Henry Oldfield II of Nottingham. Three of the bells were cast in the Clibery foundry in Wellington in the 17th century. The newest bell is by John Warner and Sons of London and is dated 1877.[6] The two-manual organ stands in the west gallery and was made by Brindley of Sheffield in 1861.[7]
