LONG ITCHINGTON Holy Trinity 4, 8½cwt in A - Unringable
History Of The Bells
This church has a truncated spire, the upper stages having been removed after the steeple was badly damaged in a storm in 1762.
The bells are hung in an old oak frame of c.1630, set diagonally in the tower. They are hung for deadrope ringing only, (full-circle, but with no handstroke pull), and have been long derelict. They are all maiden bells. The fittings are of local manufacture and appear to have been made in the early nineteenth century.
Tilley and Walters state that there were "6 bells" here in 1750. They also suggest that the bells were ringable at the time of publication, 1910
