Font

Image of the feature "Fonts: Font" at Coln Rogers.

by John Wand.

The font is located immediately W of the S doorway. An undecorated tub-shaped bowl was cut from a single block of reddish stone tapered from the wider rim to the narrower bottom, and placed above a scalloped octagonal base. Retooling is visible on the surface, repairs apparent to N and S of the rim.  The interior of the bowl has a smooth surface, with lead lining in the bottom and a drain hole. The base has one large scallop per side of the octagon, and heavy coarse diagonal tooling.  A repair on the top edge of the N scallop is directly beneath the font bowl repair.
