"The church has a well-proportioned interior. The nave is covered by a magnificent hammer beam and arch braced low pitched roof. The wooden carved figures with their ermine collars are holding symbols of the church’s worship and sacraments. These figures were re-painted by the daughters of Reverend Henry Downton in 1879, using boson’s chairs to reach such heights. Perhaps the carved figures represent local ‘townsmen’ who paid handsomely for such a fine clerestory using expensive Tudor brick. They fared better than the angels sitting on the wall post[s] which were mutilated and made headless in the Cromwellian period." –from the church guide booklet
