"The font is located in the middle of the S aisle just W of the S door into the nave. It rests on a modern plinth. The base of the font is chamfered and octagonal with a round stem. The bowl is separate from the base and has a roll mould at the bottom with eight scallops above the roll. Large quirks emphasize the shields of the scallops which rise upward giving the bowl its polygonal shape. Top is plain. Rounded interior of bowl is lead-lined with centre drain. White pigment is evident on bowl and stem. There is a large repair using original stone on the S scallop S and an iron dowel near the middle of the N scallop. Near the top of the lip there are pieces missing on W and E sides.

Given the polygonal shape, this probably dates to the second half of the 12thc."
