A Unique Font


The Font is used for the Christian rite of Baptism, but once upon a time, Norwich Cathedral’s Font was actually two copper bowls used for manufacturing toffee at Rowntree Mackintosh chocolate factory in Norwich!

The bowls were gifted to the Cathedral in 1994 when the factory closed.

Great care is taken to keep the Font looking pristine. As a result, stunning reflections of the Cathedral's ancient architecture can be seen in the copper.
