The monument seen at the end of the aisle is to Thomas Marsham (d. 1638); the monument seen at right is to Henry Marsham (d. 1692) who is depicted in a kneeling position with his wife Anne and their 12 year old son, who both died in 1678, and a baby daughter wrapped in swathing bands.

The tower of St Margaret's church is believed to have been substantially rebuilt in 1422. Inside, there are two doorways: one leading into the Marsham chapel, separated from the nave by a wooden screen and housing 17th century memorials to members of the Marsham family (seen here), and the other into the nave and chancel beyond. The church was greatly restored in the 19th century and the pulpit, lectern and desk as well as the organ date from this time. The large brass chandelier > TG2220 : St Margaret's church - view west was brought here from Russia. The north windows are inset with medieval glass, one containing a series of the four evangelists > TG2220 : St Margaret's church - medieval stained glass. There is a large stone effigy of a woman who holds her heart in one hand, in the northeastern corner of the nave; the name of the woman, who is referred to as the Black Abbess, is not known but she is presumed to have died around 1300 > TG2220 : St Margaret's church - the Black Abbess.
