This is the Norman font. It was thrown out into the churchyard when the Victorians re-ordered the church. It was later found under loads of brambles and restored to church in 1930. It now sits in the North aisle. This is the font that we use for baptisms. This is the font that most people in living memory say they were baptised in.
We will have to move it when the new ‘facilities’ are installed in the North transept.
Neither font is in the right place.
If we ask to remove one the chancellor will want a positive proposal as to what we are going to do with it.
Putting it in the churchyard and using it as a birdbath probably won’t do. If I ask for any more pews to be removed to make space for it by the door the uproar will cause more stress.
We don’t need two and yet……….
Why do building issues cause me so much angst?
