St Margaret's Church, King's Lynn

The tiles around the font are a combination of single tiles and panels of four and sixteen tiles forming a large square area around the font. The sections in the corners and sides are laid at contrasting angles, giving increasing layers of complexity to the overall pattern. The square area is itself surrounded by borders of red and black tiles in geometric arrangements (see below).
