A tub-shaped font of grey sandstone, unlined, with four ribs originally running from top of the bowl to the bottom roll moulding. It is very worn but two ribs still show stylised beakheads running into a cross. One rib has been removed leaving a slight recess. There is a roll moulding at the top of the font. The bowl sits on a later base.
