The circular font is of the 13th century, but the cover is a 17th-century addition.

"Plain, tub shaped with slightly bulging sides. Square base chamfered to an octagon at the top, the triangular chamfers decorated with a keel and a roll. The octagonal top edge of the base is also chamfered. On a modern square plinth."
