Nettlecombe font, confession

Another panel on the Nettlecombe shows a priest hearing confession while other penitents wait. Although this panel has been defaced it is possible to make out details of dress, the priest's stool and the hand raised to bless the man kneeling beside him. Other panels have suffered more damage but it is possible to identify scenes of baptism and communion.
