"The font dates from c. 1200, and consists of a square bowl (which was found in 1872 and replaced in the church around that time) on four modern legs and central shaft, set on the original chamfered plinth. The sides of the bowl are carved with a floriated Calvary cross between two discs (or more properly two eight-rayed wheels within circles.) (east), a six-leaved flower or star (west), a plain Latin cross (north), and a circle, now nearly obliterated (south)."
