SJ 74 SW WOORE C.P. NANTWICH ROAD (north- east side) 3/148 Former font approx. 15 metres to south- west of Church of Saint Leonard GV II

Font, now monument. Dated 1636. Dressed grey sandstone with herringbone tooling. Former octagonal font consisting of tapered stem with square base and panelled tapered bowl. Probably early C19 pyramidal stone cap with polyhedral finial. Late C19 or early C20 square brick pedestal. Bowl inscribed: "The gift of William Lawton 1636". An entry in the Mucklestone register of 1636 reads: "November 1. John Lawton, sone of William Lawton and Elizabeth ... bap., being the first baptism in the new Font or Baptistry given to the Chappell of Woore in the Parish of Muckleston by the gift of William Lawton". The font was probably removed from the old chapel when the present building (q.v.) was built in 1830- 1. Vivienne Painting, The History of St. Leonard's Church Woore Shropshire.
