bellsWe have a Peal of six Bells and an enthusiastic group of Ringers. We meet to practice on Wednesday evenings (unsurprisingly, in the Tower) and normally ring for our 10.00 Service.0264_couplech

We also ring for Weddings! It is a splendid joyful sound to greet the newly married couple as they come out on to the Church Steps!

 

These are the details of our bells. They were installed in 1998 and were cast in the Whitechapel Bell Foundry.
