The original medieval font bowl is on the floor of the S transept. It is of Sussex marble, worn overall with losses to all angles except the NE. All surface is gone, so that no arcading is now visible. There are remains of an old staple in the NE spandrel of the rim, and the bowl is drilled for drainage and unlined.


External width of bowl E-W 0.66 m
External width of bowl N-S 0.665 m
Internal diameter of basin 0.515 m
Height of bowl 0.26 m
