Romanesque square font has scenes on its sides depicting the baptism of Christ, the nativity, Christ in glory between the eagle of St. John and the angel of St. Matthew, and the entry into Jerusalem.

It now stands in the S aisle, W of the doorway.It was discovered in 1887, built into the W wall of the nave. The 12thc. bowl is square with a circular inner basin lined with lead. It stands on modern shafts and a double step. The bowl is damaged at the bottom and has been squared with mortar for fixing to its modern supports, and it has lost large chips from the upper NE and NW corners. Each of its faces is carved with a figure scene in relief, each scene with an upper beaded border.
