Image of the feature "Furnishings: Stone seat" at Halsham.

There is a flat stone seat on a plain base. The seat is cut away at an angle on its E side; the angled part is new, and chamfered below like the W part. Behind the seat on the S wall of the chancel is a recess with a pointed head but no mouldings. To the W of the seat is an arm rest, a upright slab curved down and up again at the outer corner, with a rounded end, as if for the left hand.
