History

The tower originally contained an anticlockwise ring of three bells which had not been rung full circle in living memory. These bells were replaced by a ring of six transferred from St James, Prebend Street, Islington, London in 1991. The ‘new’ bells were hung in a two-tier metal frame for eight designed by Eayre & Smith and constructed by John Brosh of Williford Farm and Engineering Co. Beneath the lower frame hangs the old treble (as a sanctus bell) and tenor (as a Clock bell) sounded by solenoids. They were augmented to eight in 2008 in memory of Bernard Townsend who had driven the original project.
