Lunn describes finding 'in the coigning stones of the chancel... a First-pointed piscina, with plain square basin...'; the 'First-pointed' period he dates to 1180-90 (1879-80, 230). Later (234) he says 'the First-pointed piscina is placed in the chancel, and from part of the Middle-pointed chancel arch stones and capital is made a bracket-credence.'

The piscina and credence are in the SE corner of the chancel on the E wall. The piscina has a trefoil arch with angle roll. The square basin is like that of a Romanesque piscina, but otherwise the item is Victorian.
