Baptismal Font Hurstbourne Tarrant

The baptismal font Hurstbourne Tarrant St Peters, is the newest in the church, dating from the C13th. There is another older one tucked away behind a pew.

The font in present day use is a new one relatively speaking, dating from the C13th and has a plain circular bowl resting on a stem which is quite elaborately made up of round shafts at each angle and half-octagonal shafts on each face, each has it’s own carved base. It stands on a small plinth paved with 14th-century tiles of various single and double patterns.
