History of the Bells

These bells had been uringable due to poor frame design which left one truss almost free-standing. Fittings are by White of Appleton in the late 19th century. They hang in an oak frame also by Frederick White and installed in the late 19th century.  They have been quarter turned and retain their canons. Some restoration work, including refurbishment of the wheels, means that they are ringable on a limited basis.
