History Of The Bells

The church is of Norman origin with medieval timber framing and 17th century internal additions. The bell turret is mid-19th century apart from its base, which is medieval.

The church has been converted for use as a private dwelling and access is only accessible upon special request. It was put on the market in November 2016 with an asking price of £725,000

Church Bells of Warwickshire records the diameters as 22", 24.5" & 28.75", all from the Newcombe foundry in Leicester and clocked at time of writing. They were hopelessly unringable.

These bells were removed in the early 1990s and used elsewhere, the front 2 going to Halford, to become what are now bells 2 & 3 of 6, in 1996 and the tenor to become no. 5 of 6 at Bubbenhall in 2000.

The weights are as installed in their new homes.
