The Bells

The current bell tower was built in the late 19th Century, of brick and flint at the western end of the north aisle.

The bell frame is from an earlier church building, made of oak and clamped with ancient iron straps. Originally constructed for four bells, a fifth was added in 1893 and hung in the former access area. The bell frame rests on beams set at 32’ 6” above ground level.

The bells themselves are:
