History Of The Bells

This Grade II* church was built in the late 13th Century. It was restored, altered and porch, vestry, organ chamber and turret added by Ewan Christian in 1857.

These are a chime hung in a gable end turret.  This replaced a plain brick turret that contained a single bell in 1858. The notes are approximately E, F# and G.  They are hung for swing chiming in a three level wooden frame that is placed diagonally within the turret.

Access is extremely difficult. The middle bell is/was on the floor of the church, (seen there by CJP, lowered in 1984). They are hung for swing chiming in a three tier wood frame placed diagonally within the turret.
