Inside the church is a fine alabaster reredos and a nineteenth century painting of the Adoration of the Shepherds.

The nave roof is said to have formerly served as the roof of the chancel of All Saints Church in Holbeach.

The modern lean-to sheds against the west side of the building beneath the bellcote are in appalling taste.
