History Of The Bells
Formerly a ring of 3, rehung and quarter turned by Barwell of Birmingham in a composite frame in the early 1900s, these bells were rehung for swing chiming in the early 1990s. The treble is of an usual shape. It has very tall canons and is somewhat long-waisted. It is difficult to date.
The two treble bells are maiden castings, but the tenor's note has been considerably lowered by chip tuning.
