Chelwood, North-East Somerset

This font is in St Leonard's church, Chelwood.

Fat font with scallops, scallopy circle and volutes

Another angle of the chunky square font

The more I look at these sketches, the more problems of dodgy perspective I can see. But they're only on-the-spot drawings so I'm not going to beat myself up too much. I think I've got something of the font's chunkiness. The nice little spirally scrolls at the corners are called volutes. In Codford St Mary we saw some much bigger ones on some columns, and they had an animal-eye effect. But these didn't really.
