Church of St Wilfrid, West Hallam
The font. The date and origin of this are a mystery. One suggestion is that it is the base of an old village cross, but it does not appear sufficiently weathered for this. It was installed in the church in 1878 after being discovered in Derby and investigations following this suggested that it probably came from West Hallam Hall, home to a Roman Catholic family who would have used it for secret baptisms. It was thought to have been presented to Derby Museum from the ancient chapel at Mapperley, which was replaced by a new building in 1851.
