"The font is of late 12th-century date, and consists of a rectangular bowl with arcaded sides in high relief, the round arches resting on circular shafts with moulded bases and volute capitals. The pyramidal oak cover is of late 16th or early 17th century date. The upper part of the bowl has been renewed."
