12th century plain circular stone Norman baptism font in St Giles' church, Marston Montgomery.

The church is said to have the oldest ecclesiastical masonry in Derbyshire, with the Norman font, as well as Saxon and Norman arches - but much of it was rebuilt in the 19th century. It has a low sloping roof and a bellcote, and nestles into its surroundings with some old tombs and an ancient yew.
