This alabaster recumbent effigy probably dates from the 14th century. It shows a lady in long robes and headdress, with a hound at her feet. She clasps in her hand a casket, possibly a reliquary. The effigy lay in the north-east corner of the church's chancel, which was rebuilt in the 15th century.
