14th century baptism font in St Margaret's church, Carsington.

"St Margaret’s is a gem of a church set back from the road in the heart Carsington, opposite the village green.

It is assumed to have been built in the 13th century, the present configuration dating from around 1320. Sir John Philip Gell, the landowner, erected the impressive wooden gallery at the west end for the estate tenants in 1704.

?The church contains many small and ancient wonders including a 14th century font. The church is open during the day throughout the year, so do come in and visit."
