Notes: The present bells replaced an original Rudhalls 6 after a fire resulting from a lightning strike in 1840. The tenor cracked in the early years of the 20th century and the bells have been virtually unringeagle for the last hundred years. Considerable work has recently been completed on the tower, and the bells have been be rehung by Matthew Higby in the existing frame with the tenor welded summer 2009. Some work to clappers and with sound control still to be completed.
