Long Description:
The large tub font is of a simple design, and looks like late Saxon or early Norman, though the church guide insists that it is definitely not Saxon! The wooden cover is Jacobean.

"The parish church of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Saint Leodegarius dates from 1100, but is mostly an C14-C15 construction. Saint Leodegarius was a French Benedictine Bishop who became abbot of St. Maxentius in 653.
The gabled south porch and most of the pews in the nave are early 14th century."
