Internally restored by William Slater in 1859 to 60 (he was born in the village) and later the chancel more elaborately by F Butler with good external sculpture by J Forsyth. The south chapel was added in 1872 to designs by Salvin for Lady Milton who painted the windows herself under the auspices of Heaton, Butler & Bayne.

Note the medieval bench ends and the continental gothic tower screen, a memorial to C Bower Ismay (of Titanic fame). His grave in the church yard north of the tower is a remarkable creation by AH Gerrard, a block like structure with a frieze of animals including horses, lions and antelopes.

On the further side of the graveyard is a memorial stone to the American journalist Edwin Lawrence Godkin (1831-1902).

Whilst the tower is medieval the church was so rebuilt in the 17th and 18th century that that is its overriding appearance.
