The core of the church is Norman, as the lovely arcades of the nave show. These run through both nave and chancel, and their capitals have a wide range of carved decoration. Among and in between the Norman columns are woodwork screens dating from the 15th to the 17th century.

The Jacobean rood screen is particularly good, with two delicately carved lower stages and an upper stage with the favoured Jacobean motifs of obelisks and balusters. The screen still has its original doors.

Ancient benches and stalls add yet more to the character. Looking down on all this woodwork is a magnificent double hammerbeam roof, with a complex array of carved timbers among which are wooden angels with outstretched wings.
