Staplefield church interior

This is a similar view to picture #325 but without the harvest festival decorations.
Unlike the earlier photograph the ornate cover for the font is in its normal default position awaiting the next christening.
Mr Robert Loder of High Beeches, Handcross gave a lectern to the church as a thank offering for the recovery from a severe illness of his young son, Gerald Loder, soon after his birth in 1861. I assume that is the very same lectern standing in front of the steps leading to the altar.
