History Of The Bells

This church was built in 1874 at the sole expense of a local benefactor. It's spire is very prominent and can be seen from afar. The tower and spire stand at the north west corner of the nave.

Shortly after the church was completed, three old bells from St.Mary’s (q.v.) and one new bell were hung in the tower by Barwell's in a 5 bell frame. In 1882 Barwell's submitted quotations for re-casting the ancient bells, replacing the old fittings and providing a new tenor bell, all at a cost of £107. This work was never completed.

In 2000 the bells were retuned, a redundant bell from Bagworth in Leicestershire added and the ring rehung for swing chiming. The work was undertaken by Hayward Mills Associates at a cost of £24,380.

In 2008 the chime was turned into a ringing peal of 6, with the tenor replaced by a new bell and the previous one kept as a service bell. A bell cast by Warner in 1904, inscribed J WARNER & SONS LONDON 1904, from a church in Grimsby was been identified by the Keltek Trust as being suitable to become the treble. The treble has had its canons removed and the tenor was cast with a flat top; the middle four bells retain their canons.
