History Of The Bells
In a nice rural setting this church is well kept by the congregation. The tower contains a lovely ring of 5 bells that go well and are to be recommended as a place to visit. They were originally a heavy four (tenor 22-1-20) until 1851 when the old tenor was scrapped, the metal being used to cast two new trebles, the net cost to the parish being £54. They were retuned and rehung in a cast iron, single level. "H" frame by Taylors in 1936. The treble and second have been quarter turned and the rest one eighth turned.
There is a sanctus bell, dated 1677 weighing 0-2-2 in D that was hung for swing chiming in a light steel frame fixed to the top members of the main bellframe. All the bells in the tower retain their canons. These were a ground floor ring until summer 2000.
Enter by the north door. Limited parking on the road by the church. There is also a church car park to the south of the church, just by the sharp bend in the road. This church is frequently used for concerts, having very good acoustics.
