Low 6-bay aisle arcade, perhaps of late C13 date. The Lady Chapel has a single arch to the chancel and to the nave aisle.

Nave aisle has original roof, the main components moulded; 2 lower needled tie beams are C17 insertions, one bearing the date 1621. On the north nave wall are 4 C15 paintings showing St. Christopher, the Seven Deadly Sins, the Acts of Mercy and the Last Judgement. Mid C15 carved octagonal font; the tall cover is dated 1879.

Against east wall of Lady Chapel is a large marble monument to Thomas Maynard (1742) by Charles Stanley. This shows a life-size figure standing against an urn set on a pedestal; the pedestal has a well-carved relief of women and children. The whole is set against a black marble obelisk. 2 ledger slabs at east end of nave have C17 brass inscriptions.
