The baptismal font Farringdon All Saints is a bit of a mixed up affair

The font basin is a cylindrical tub, undecorated. This suggests a possible earlier date than the four C12th fluted capitals and raised plinth that it rests upon. The oak lid is early but difficult to date precisely.

Our intention is to map as many Hampshire baptismal fonts as possible. Go to the post Hampshire Baptismal Fonts to see a list of those added to date.
