The three existing bells were rehung in the back three pits of a new metal frame for six in 1953 by Taylor's. The bells were augmented to four in 1985, when a single bell was transferred from St. Mark’s, Derby, and are rung from the ground floor. In early 2001 the opportunity arose to purchase two treble bells to augment the ring to six.
