St Mary's parish church: stone screen to Lady chapel with double arcade, supporting organ loft, reconstructed end 19th century. East side of gallery surrounded by parapet of open quatrefoil work. Preserved before 1852. Altar screen erected late 15th century. Mutilated 16th century (Tudor) fragments and cramps for images remain. Altar has been removed. Screen restored before 1842, but not on old lines. Other remains of screen work: two fairly good oak parcloses with doors, being part of some old screen, brought from the back of one of the galleries. Said to be late 14th century.
