A ring of five bells was cast by Barwell in 1885/7 when the church was rebuilt, as was often the case, and were hung in a wooden frame. A treble bell was added by the same firm in 1903. In 1996 this ring of six was transferred to St Guthlac, Branston, Leicestershire and a new ring of six was cast by Taylors and hung in a new low-side metal eight-bell frame in 1994 before being augmented to eight in 1998.
