The bells

BELLS

There is a ring of eight bells:  details are shown below..

The bells cannot be rung at present for safety reasons pending refurbishment.  We hope to be able to put them back into use during 2022.  

Access to the ringing chamber is not straightforward and requires a certain degree of suppleness and a good head for heights!
