The font dates from the 12th century, when there was probably a wooden church on the site. The stone church that Grimm drew was built in the 13th century. The font has a cylindrical shape and is decorated with a diagonal criss-cross pattern. It has a decorative border around the rim with a sunken star pattern. It is now in All Saints church, which was built in 1874 to replace this building.
