History

This is a Grade I listed church. It has a 12th century nave; late 13th century south aisle, early/mid 14th century north aisle, chancel, vestry and priest's room and 14/15th century tower.

These bells were, until recently, an unringable 3, largely due to a thin frame. The frame is by John Waters of Kings Sutton - 1809,  and the fittings by Whites of Appleton - 1903.

Eayre and Smith removed these bells on 1st July 2002 and rehung them for swing chiming. They are hung on standard canon retaining headstocks fitted with levers. The firm were not allowed to touch the frame.

Previous information that the tenor was bigger than the space to get it out of the frame is incorrect.

They sound notes 1-3-4 of four.
