History Of The Bells

This unringable 3 was hung dead in a new "frame" in 1979 by Taylor's and augmented to become a chime of 4 by the addition of a new treble in 1985. Previously they hung in a four bell frame, though the spare pit was never occupied.

They are chimed using trigger action clappers attached to 4 separate ropes i.e. not an Ellacombe apparatus.
