History Of The Bells

This small, but very nice, church contains a good ring of six that was augmented and rehung from an awkward ring of 4 in 1992, (The Dedication Service was on 21 Nov 1992). Previously rehung in a strengthened frame by Webb & Bennett of Kidlington in 1910, Mears & Stainbank further strengthened the frame in 1939. The old seventeenth century frame was supposed to be re-erected at "The Bury", but Chris Pickford does not know if this was done.

Park near to the church and enter through the south door to an inside entrance at the base of the tower to the ringing gallery.
