The interior of North Creake, apart from its roof, is mostly an 1890s restoration of a Decorated chancel and Perpendicular tower and nave. The restoration is said to be faithful but has deprived North Creake of much of the patina of age. The most noticeable feature of the nave is the roof, which retains some of its old paint. This fine Anglian hammerbeam has gaudy angels that look rather oriental. The aisle roofs are simpler but also original. Even the restored chancel roof apparently uses the original members, though its angels look modern. Above the chancel arch are the remains of a Doom painting, defaced by the chip marks of its plastering. Beyond is a decorated chancel containing a fine group of piscina, sedelia and Easter Sepulchre.
