Font. Probably C12. Crudely carved octagonal tub shape with hole
in basin. Zig-zag decoration to base and Greek palindromic inscription
to rim, largely illegible at time of resurvey (October 1986) but known
to read (translated) "CLEANSE YOUR SIN, NOT YOUR FACE ONLY". In early

included in this list) but was formerly inside the Church of St. Mary
