The west end

The font in the baptistry stands under a rare and unusual 15th century wooden canopy – originally highly coloured. Only the lower section is original; the upper part of the canopy was restored, complete with trumpet wielding angels and pelican for Queen Victoria’s Jubilee.

The 38 stop organ which graces the west end of the nave was built by Peter Collins, then of Redbourn, Hertfordshire, in 1984. The case is of English Oak with lime wood embellishments.

Also in the baptistry is the beautiful Mancroft resurrection tapestry of 1573. It may have been the Easter Day altar frontal woven in the parish by refugee Flemish weavers.
