    The tower & Bells

    The octagonal tower supports eight bells, the heaviest weighing just over 16cwt, most of which date from 1811, although it is evident there were bells here for a long time before then - records go back to 1586. The bells used to be in what is now our ringing chamber and until 1833 the bells were a ground floor ring. In 1902 the bells were rehung and the iron girders were placed in the tower due to the old wood supports were rotten.
