History Of The Bells

These bells are unringable due to poor frame design which leaves one truss almost free-standing.

Fittings are by White of Appleton, installed in the late 19th century. They hang in an oak frame by an unknown local carpenter, it being installed in 1817.

They have been quarter turned and retain their canons. The Watts bells are very fine in their tone. The tenor is "maiden". The treble has been chip-tuned to raise its note, it is still a little flat of where it should be. The second's note has been deepened by chip tuning.
