Font, St Andrews, Aycliffe, County Durham

  • Description

    There are conflicting views as to the age of the font. One article puts it at circa 800AD. Another puts it at 12th Century and Nicholas Pevsner wrote "early Norman?" The coloumned-stand was added in 1881. Regardless of its exact age it was really spooky to touch something in which my ancestors have been baptised since at least circa 1330AD.
