Inside hangs an oil painting of "The Last Supper", a replacement rood screen which was erected in 1902, along with a number of beautiful windows.

There’s a famous connection here; one of the windows is in memory of the 3rd Earl of Carnarvon, an ancestor of the Earl of Carnarvon who, along with Howard Carter, discovered the tomb of Tutankhamen.
