On a ledge at the top of the chest is an inscription. Set in the west wall of the nave is a tapering limestone tombstone with Lombardic inscription round the edge. It retains a brass depicting a demi- figure of a knight in chain mail and surcoat, head resting on a pillow with ogee corners and mailed hands holding a heart. Beneath is the matrix for a second now vanished shield shaped panel. This early C14 brass to Richard de Boselyngthorpe is one of the earliest military brasses in England.
