Music and Worship

The bells are a very pleasant and easy going ring. The ringing chamber is up a short, easy stair case.
Until 1901 there were four bells in the tower, three of them dating from c17. In 1901, these bells were recast into a ring of six bells, by Taylor's of Loughborough. In 1988, two trebles, cast by Eijsbout's of Asten (Netherlands), were added by Eayre & Smith.
