The main font dates to the Victorian restoration although there is also an earlier font within the church. Designed by Mr Earp of Lambeth (1878-80), it is octagonal and made of a solid block of white alabaster.
Below the furthest window on the west side is the font of the 1474 church, restored by John German (1844 - 1936), churchwarden for 35 years.
