History of the Bells

These bells are unringable. One corner of frame being was unsupported where a foundation beam was chopped away for boiler flue, though this has been remedied recently with an R.S.J. Fittings are by Barwell 1880s when they strengthened the frame and rehung the bells.  A recent survey indicated that the frame has some movement but the gudgeons on the treble, and possibly other bells, require new bolts - the treble has a loose gudgeon. The frame generally requires tightening/strengthening and gudgeons etc before ringing. They are chimed regularly for service.
