The font is centrally placed in the nave, W of the S doorway. It consists of a cylindrical bowl on a coursed ashlar shaft of the same diameter and a cylindrical plinth. The bowl is lead-lined; the lining taken over the rim. There is evidence of damage to the rim in the form of extensive mortar patching at the top of the sides.
