The chancel of St Andrew's church is totally Victorian, the original being pulled down in 1892. They included modern sedilia and piscina with a credence shelf. The work was undertaken by J. T. Lee and he reused the east window - Pevsner states the chancel is ‘a splendid remodelling’.

The original trefoil-headed 14th-century piscina with fluted bowl supported by a female head is now located in the vestry.
