At the back of St Catherine's Church in Ludham stands the font. It dominates the open space in front of the tower and is a fine place to be baptised.
The Font (with the Archive Map behind)
This font, carved in the 15th Century is unusual as it has two Woodwoses (Green Men) carved on it. Here is the text of the notice you see in the picture:
The font in Ludham Church is a typical 15th Century East Anglian one, eight sided, with the four Evangelists, emblems of the Lion of St Mark, the eagle, the ox and the angel on the bowl. On the corona are angels with out-spread wings. It is the figures on the shaft that make this font virtually unique, for, between the two lions séjant (sitting up), are a male and female woodwose.
Perhaps the person who carved the font was keeping his options open with the old religion as well as the current one. We may never know, but the font is well worth a careful look.
