Home > Our bells

A short description

We have a ring of 6 bells vary in age from 1717 to 1856, though there are records of bells in this tower back to 1552. The bells are hung in their original oak frame. The weight of the bells varies from just over 3 hundredweight for the number 2 to just over 8 hundredweight for the tenor. The treble, normally the lightest bell, is heavier than the 2 at just over 4 hundredweight. This is because the 2 had to be recast in 1856 after it fell out of the tower. That is why our tower is part brick and part flint.
