In the interior is a carved oak screen, the gift of Archbishop Wareham, to match the ceiling, which is also of oak. There are chapels belonging to the Wesleyans and Primitive Methodists. A National school-room was built in 1843. The parochial charities amount to £4 per annum. The Dean and Chapter of Winchester are lords of the manor. "
