The church here, as with others in this built up area, is kept closed to visitors. I did take in a service here though in December 2011 and saw inside again in May 2015, when I arrived at the same time as a group of visiting bellringers.
The focal point of the interior is the impressive stained glass window at the east end of the chancel. This features Christ in majesty at the top, holding globs with hand raised in blessing. To either side he is flanked by his disciples, eleven of them depicted, along with Mary Magdalene. Below, we have scenes from the life of Christ. From left to right the infant Jesus lying in a manger, Jesus baptised by John The Baptist,the crucifiction, the last supper and the acsension. The depiction of the last supper features and unkept and shifty looking Judas. with bag of money, looking away from Jesus as evryone else looks adoringly towards him. A beautiful piece of work, dedicated to Susanna Apthorp who died in 1864
A further window in the south aisle depicts Mary The Virgin with the infant Jesus. Panels to the left and right show St John The Baptist and St Ethelreda. The latter was a daughter of the King of East Anglia. She founded a monastery on the site of what is now Ely Cathederal in 673.
A carved green man is hidden away to the north east of the nave and there are some very finely carved bench end which date back to the 15th century. Some of these feature human faces with others others having a decorative foliage pattern. The font dates from 1300 and is octagonal with a curious repeated interlocking pattern which only comes half way up the bowl.
It was good to be here and good to see inside this church again. Well worth a look if you are in the area but expect it to be locked unless you sort something out prior or attend a service. Lovely friendly people here who I am sure would be pleased to see you.
