Fonts


We are fortunate in Suffolk to have some very fine Fonts, some of them sadly have been defaced. The stone can be Caen or Purbeck some are marble, most tell a story this one at Monk Soham is one of the seven sided 7-sacrament fonts



This one at Orford is between 600 & 700 years of age and probably predates the existing church



This 7-sacrament at Southwold is somewhat mutilated as can be seen on the centre panel, the cover is huge and modern in comparison
