"Two coped stone coffin lids, perhaps of 14th-century date, formerly in the churchyard, are now inside the building. They are similar in type, showing the exposed head and feet of an effigy, but of the larger only the upper part remains.

The smaller is 2 ft. wide at the head and 6 ft. 2 in. long, but the feet of the figure are gone. The larger, in which a priest is represented, is 2 ft. 7 in. at the head, but is reduced in length to 4 ft.
See Boutell, Christian Mon. (1854), 144, where the smaller is figured."
