"The font is situated in the south-west corner. It is of 14th century origin with open circular bowl, decorated with floral carved oak mounting around the rim and supported by a Victorian stone pedestal standing on a plinth. The register reveals a child was baptised in it on the day Charles Stuart was beheaded (1649), a fact echoed in the unmarked graves in the churchyard of two soldiers killed at Willoughby Field in 1648."
