Description

This stone piscina is in St Michael and All Angels Anglican Church in the small Tasmanian town of Bothwell. The church was built in the Gothic Revival style from 1887 and consecrated in 1891. It was designed by Launceston architect Alexander North (1858-1945) and built of local stone by Lewis and son and Hallet, primarily by the stonemason Thomas Lewis. Lewis was presumably responsible for the piscina (the shallow basin, used for washing communion vessels) with a recessed double niche and column. The stonework is in the Gothic style with prominent pointed arches.
