In the South Aisle, Eastwell church
The piscina and small aumbrey in the south wall.
An aumbrey is a recess in a wall which could serve as a cupboard used to store consecrated wafers for the Holy Communion. There is evidence of a door being fixed to this opening. A piscina was originally a basin or cup, often made of stone, used for washing vessels used in the Sacrament. By the 13th century the piscina was recessed into the wall with a pipe or channel connected directly to the ground for the disposal of liquid. You can see the depression of the "drain" quite clearly in this one.
