Font and carved wood font cover - St John's Church
The font is believed to be 12th century, but the wooden font cover is attributed to the work of the firm of Harry Hems of Exeter, a firm of ecclesiastical carvers. The firm was commission on a restoration project under the overall supervision of architect Sir Gilbert Scott. On this occasion the font cover to keep the holy water secure and uncontaminated was created new in 1874, on other restoration projects Hems renovated and repaired existing medieval font covers.
