Details

The Medieval door of this old port church still bears the holes made by troops to put muskets through during the English Civil War.

Over the nave is an elegant 16th-century hammerbeam roof and the north aisle roof is even older.

The 18th- and 19th-century screens and furnishings, the (1901) mural decoration over the chancel arch, and an array of saints in stained glass create a handsome and devotional interior.
