Feature Sets

The church appears to date from the 13thc. The aisleless nave has opposing doorways and is contiguous with the chancel, without an arch. There is a S porch and N vestry.


Marden is mentioned in the Domesday Book, but no church. The church was restored in 1875. When Walker published this font in 1908 the lining did not overlap the rim, and she noted that staples remained on one side.





The font is probably late 12thc. or early 13thc. in date.
