Norwich Cathedral Font

For years the confectionery company Rowntree Mackintosh was a major employer in the city of Norwich. In 1969 Rowntree took over Mackintosh, who in their Norwich factory were busy making toffee. The factory eventually closed down completely in 1994 and later gifted two of the brightly burnished copper bowls formerly used in the manufacture of toffee, which are now used as a stunning modern font, with historic ties to the community of the City. These copper bowls are surprisingly big, and have a real visual beauty and glow. It is nice to see the new being incorporated into the old, continuing the developing story and timeline of the Cathedral.
