The font, which probably dates from the early 13th century, consists of a curious bulbous bowl with four attached shafts carved to its shape. The bowl is supported on a circular stem and four circular shafts, the latter were replaced by red marble sometime in the 19th century. Both the stem and shafts have moulded bases.
