12th century font, the base has 8 circular shafts and square basin with chamfered corners, carved like a cushion capital.

'The medieval church still has some evidence of late 12th century fabric - Together with this font there is the priest's doorway in the south chancel wall and the lower parts of the west tower, with a good arch towards the nave. It was restored in 1854 when a medieval screen was removed.'
