History Of The Bells

These bells are unringable due to tatty wheels and heavily-worn un-quarter-turned bells. Frame & fittings are by Watson of Napton - 1831. They are all maiden bells, retaining their canons and cast in crown staples. They only just survived a fire in 1879. There is a chiming manual in the first floor of the tower, made by the Vicar's Warden, Thomas Walker, in 1919.
