Baptism font in All Saints' church, Lubenham. The present octagonal font dates from the 19th century and has occupied its present site since at least 1849; the medieval font was then said to have been destroyed when alterations were made in 1812.

"The picturesque church building originally dates from the late 12th and early 13th centuries. Over the centuries a large number of additions and alterations have been made, most recently the addition of modern facilities and the creation of more space for children’s groups. The church retains its ancient delights and enjoys many intricate features which can easily be missed at first glance.
The church building is open every day from 9am to 6pm in the summer and 9am-4pm in the winter."
