seven sacraments: Mass
The Westhall font

Suffolk has hundreds of fascinating medieval fonts, many in the typically East Anglian style of the late 15th Century, with angels and evangelistic symbols around the eight sides of the bowl and lions and woodwoses underneath. Suffolk also has thirteen fonts in the famous Seven Sacraments series, although only ten of them have any surviving imagery. These are marked by asterisks in the list below. Suffolk is not a great county for Norman fonts, although some of those which survive are very good indeed.
