St John the Baptist
Font Cover – Photograph (PWDRO 116/29); date unknown
The design of the font cover is very similar to others produced by Violet Pinwill, such as at Tavistock in Devon and at Kenwyn, Landulph, and Pillaton in Cornwall, which all have a border of Aaron’s rod and four curved ‘handles’ surmounted by a dove. Unfortunately, the cover at Broadclyst has lost its dove, though one is shown in the photograph at PWDRO.
