Baptism Font in St Andrew's church, North Kilworth.

A primitive Norman font which has been placed on new ornate, carved acanthus leaved pillars. This occured around 1856 as part of the Victorian restoration of the church.

"It is believed that the Church was built around the time of Henry II (1154 to 1189) when it comprised the existing Chancel, central Nave, north aisle and the bell tower (without a spire). The period is Early English. The arches at the east and west ends of the Nave are dignified in their proportions and regarded as fine examples for their period. It is likely that Robert Rabaz was responsible for the construction and it is possible that his tomb lies under the Lady Chapel at the east end of the north aisle."
