Font, now garden ornament. Probably C14 or C15. Limestone. Octagonal plan,
although only 2 sides remain at time of survey (April 1987). Blind traceried
panels to sides. Stepped octagonal stone base. Thomas Wharton (1771-1790), a
former rector of Kiddington, refers to the font in his Specimen of a History of
Oxfordshire (1783) and states that it came from the "Kings Chapell" in Islip
c.1780. It is now a garden ornament in Kiddington park.
