History Of The Bells

A nice pretty Warwickshire village. The church has three bells, with room for more. They are very much in a ringable state. The cast iron frame and fittings are by Thomas Bond of Burford, 1938. The treble was previously rehung by Barwells in about 1900 at which time it was quarter turned. It has now been one-eighted turned.  The other two bells have been quarter turned. All bells have had their canons removed. A piece from the old bellframe dated 1636 is preserved in the tower.

Look for the sign from High Street signed "Church Street Only" to the left.
