The Parish magazine of the time said:  Mr G. H. Fellowes Pryune [sic], the well known church architect, has been over to consider a scheme for the improvement of the East End of the Church, the formation of a side chapel, and the erection of a chapel screen, and we hope to receive his scheme at an early date. There has been a long delay in this matter owing to the Architect’s absence in Ceylon, where he is building a Cathedral.

The Oak screen in the Lady chapel is particularly effective, neatly reflecting the designs on nearby capitals.
