A piscina in St John the Baptist's church crypt. If contemporary dates from the mid 12th century.

"The late Norman crypt dates back to c1150 and is composed of two chambers both of which are rib vaulted. The unique octagonal western crypt contains a Caen stone font given to the church by the Reverend Thomas Cattell who was the Rector from 1791 until 1826. The eastern rectangular crypt contains traces of a medieval wall decoration above the altar. The low stone seating around the walls was once used by the elderly and infirm. The crypt, which can be accessed via a pew in the North aisle, is used today as a chapel, a baptistery and occasionally an art gallery."
