A 2001 inventory records the fixtures and fittings in the church. The following are included: two coat hooks, a bell, strip heaters, two vestries for the priest, and lamp shades. These last were made by Arthur Furley, a local blacksmith. The heating system must have been very welcome because there are people in the village who remember sitting round a coal fire in the middle of the room.
