Inside the church, there is an octagonal Medieval font which is still used today. The organ and organ loft which are also still used today are at the west end of the nave and are built into the tower. On entering the Church from the south door, there is a small Medieval holy water stoup to the left with pointed arch and octagonal bowl.  Faithful people would have dipped their fingers into this water and blessed themselves with the sign of the cross and some people still use the water for this today.

Recent Changes to the Church Building: Much work has also taken place in St Michael’s during the last fifteen years, including installing a modern heating system, re-roofing the nave, building a new entrance ramp and adding a new kitchen and toilet which have facilities for the disabled and for baby changing.  As a result, St Michael’s is now used regularly for various activities and is available to hire for £9 per hour. More details here.

During this recent work, the finely carved modern screen which used to separate the newer nave from the chancel was replaced in the hall area in front of the kitchen.  Also, the kitchen area has no roof so that the stained glass window on the west wall of the south aisle can still be partly seen.  It shows St.Michael on the left in full armour with scales in his hand to symbolise weighing the souls of the departed, and St.Gabriel on the right holding a lily.
