Edward Turner, late rector, by his son, the Rev. T. R. Turner: in the south transept is a memorial window to the late Sir J. V. Shelley bart. painted by his daughter, Mrs. Hervey Pechell an early Norman window, date about 1080, discovered in the south wall of the nave, and in a good state of preservation, has been filled with a stained-glass scroll, copied from an ancient window in the cathedral at Rheims : there are carved stone sedilia in the sacrarium and an eagle lectern of oak, presented by Miss Butler, the rector's sister : the stalls and reading. desks are of English oak, elaborately carved : the ancient oak porch, an object of great interest, has been care­fully restored from an old drawing in the possession of C.
