The entrance to the church is through the north porch which has a vaulted ceiling with roof bosses. The most striking feature of St Mary's is the east window > LinkExternal link which was assembled from medieval glass as well as 16th and 17th century glass from the Continent, all collected by the then Rector, John Postlethwaite, who left it to the church along with the funds required to have it installed. A magnificent wooden chest > LinkExternal link stands by the south chancel wall. Known as the Denton chest, it has been constructed from panels depicting saints, all defaced. The octagonal font > LinkExternal link dates from the 14th century and the church has a set of royal arms to Queen Victoria (above the south door) > LinkExternal link and to George III (above the north door) > LinkExternal link.
