Baptismal Font Hurstbourne Tarrant

This entry is part 2 of 3 in the series Upper Test Valley Fonts

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.
