Notes:

Being Herefordshire’s first completely new ring ring of bells for over 60 years; they are also one of the last complete Whitechapel rings before the foundry closed in 2015. The light bells are very pretty and suit the beautiful country parish church.

The Rector Francis Stedman, father to the famous bellringer Fabian was incumbent of this parish from 1625-1671. Fabian was baptised at the font on 7th December 1640.

We are very pleased to welcome ringers to Yarkhill to ring our beautiful bells and look forward to your visit in the future.
