St Mary & Corpus Christi, Down Hatherley, Glos

Late Perp west tower, the rest rebuilt 1859-60. It was locked, a change from Cameron's map - but the only one. A quick call to the C/W and we were inside. Not large particularly, but with some ornate detail. I was taken by a pair of windows by A L Moore in the north aisle, a WW1 memorial. However the chief object of interest here is the lead font, one of eight in Gloucestershire, and the latest of them all, C16.
