All Hallows Church
All Hallows Church
The outlines of the chancel arch are visible on the inside of the west wall. On each side of it are recesses incorporating re-used 13th-century masonry. In the south wall is a sedilia and in the sanctuary is a piscina, both of which have ogee heads. On the sanctuary floor are Minton tiles. The ceiling dates from the 19th century and is decorated with Latin inscriptions praising the Virgin Mary. The font dates from the 15th century and was formerly in a church at Low Toynton in Lincolnshire. It consists of an octagonal bowl with panels containing carvings of angels, other figures, a Tudor rose, and other flowers. The base is also octagonal, and the stem incorporates carvings of saints. At the base of the altar steps is a ledger slab to the memory of a 14th-century priest. This has a Latin inscription around its margin, and is carved with a cross fleury and a chalice.
