Detail view of a 12th century font with a round stone bowl and short cylindrical shaft on a round base. There are carvings of flower stalks with leaves around the bowl which reach up towards open flower carvings near the rim of the bowl. Above this sits the font cover which is highly decorated and has a small spire. The church itself is 15th century and was restored in the 19th century.
