4) The Parish Chest

This would have been used to store the parish registers and church treasures. Made of oak, it has a lock plate with three keyholes in it. One key would have been held by the rector, and one by each of the two churchwardens; all three key holders would have had to be present for the chest to be unlocked. It is dated 1633 and bears the initials of the churchwardens of that time.
