The font is 14th century, restored in the 19th century, and has an octagonal bowl.

In the 17th century Saint Radegund's was said to be in a " ruinous condition", having been used as a barn and stable for a number of years.
Repairs were carried out and a gallery was added at the west end of the nave, but by the 1890s it was in a state of dilapidation, and extensive restoration was carried out.

The church can seat up to 80 people.
