History Of The Bells
These are a clock chime with the fourth quarter bell hung for ringing. The 4th is the old bell from the previous church, being by Thomas Mears, 1835. It is hung for ringing in a frame dated 1880. Taylors provided new ringing fittings for it in 1917. The others are hung dead.
They are actually clock bells, but all five can be chimed from an Ellacombe chiming manual. The Mears bell has had its canons removed, but the Taylor bells retain their canons.
