Description
Octagonal drum set into the corner of the nave where it joins the chancel on N side of the church. Elevated on a stone plinth and entered via two stone steps at the rear, surmounted by a metal desk with attached electric light. The panels on four sides are richly carved with blind tracery consisting on the two large panels of rounded Norman arches with chevron carving to the arch. Two smaller panels have receding gothic arches. All arches are supported on Tuscan columns. The large panel on the W side of the pulpit is carved as a war memorial. It has a raised cruciform cross with patée shaped ends. The dates 1914 and 1919 are carved into the corners above the arch. Below the cross is an inscription incised into the wood in roman caps. The second large panel on the S side of the pulpit has a raised sacred monogram Chi Rho, the crossed members are keys with foliate handles. The two corners above the arch have stylised flower carving with scrolls either side. The cornice has bird beak moulding with a flat top running round two sides of the pulpit. The wall at the E side of the nave is wainscoted to the same height as the pulpit with recessed panels. The base of the pulpit is a hollow sandstone plinth of five sides, not equilateral. The W and S facing sides have trefoil open arches; the SW face has double bead and quirk moulding, the NE face has single bead moulding. The fifth side abuts the first of two steps to the pulpit.
