There are several must see things at the church. The impressive Tudor half timbered porch has protect the stunning Norman carved doorway for 450 years.

The gem of the church is the font, which is 12th century and one of the finest in the country. It displays scenes of the seasons, in great detail.

Other things to see include the chained Bible, the early roof line, stone sedilia and various memorials including those to the Sandford family which date over three centuries. The north chapel was added in 1380 as a chantry by Sir William Sandford. The north wall has been altered to take the medieval windows which came from Worksop Priory and were reglazed in about 1840.
