History Of The Bells

These bells are hopelessly unringable. The frame is a Bagley installation from time of treble, no pulleys are present. The bells, all being maiden castings, are in the key of Bb major. They hang in a wooden frame of 1664.

The church has now passed into private ownership, Wroxall Abbey Estates and they have renamed it as "Wren's Chapel". Its ministers are from the Free Methodist Church in Solihull.
