Wood Font cover
This medieval font cover was renovated in 1898 by the ecclesiastic wood carver, Messrs. Harry Hems and Sons of Exeter. The font cover is now kept securely behind the screen to the north chapel. It is not where it is stated to be in the church's guide book. In the linked photo the font cover can be seen behind the screen to the left. SX8963 : Rood screen, Cockington church

By comparison, in 1874 a new font cover was created by Harry Hems craftsmen during the restoration of St. John the Baptist church, Stowford. Both font covers are in a Gothic style one original (shown here) and one created new and shown in the linked photograph, but in a similar Gothic style. SX8963 : Wood Font cover
