This heavily restored font belongs to a large group of arcaded Sussex marble fonts, which were produced throughout the area in the late 12thc. The square plinth probably replaced five columns and the entire surface of the basin appears to have been retooled, giving it a more pristine appearance than other fonts in the same group.
