Image of the feature "Fonts: Font" at Ickford.
by Ron Baxter.
In the S aisle, alongside pier 2. The font has an almost cylindrical bowl, very slightly wider at the top that the bottom, with chamfered upper and lower rims. It stands on a cylindrical stem made of ashlar blocks, and this on a plain chamfered base. The bowl has been extensively restored, but is substantially medieval. It is lead lined and has rim repairs at W and N, and a large inserted repair at the E. The W section of the bowl is best preserved. The stem is modern, but the base appears original.
