Access to ringing chamber: Spiral staircase with 15 steps up to ringing gallery. There is a warning notice at the entrance of the stairs about the unevenness of the steps. “I have come across far worse with no warning!” Bobbie May

Originally the church had four bells and some further work was done 1610-12. These bells were replaced by Warner and Sons of London and dedicated in October 1884 — adding two further bells.

In 1999 the six bells were retuned and rehung with new ringing fittings in the existing oak-bell frame. A new section of framework was installed and two new bells added to complete the octave, the project being jointly funded by the Parish and the Millennium Bell Fund. The Bells were rededicated on Sunday, 7th November, 1999. In 2003 the undersized 7th and tenor bells were recast by Whites of Appleton Ltd., Church Bellhangers, established 1824.
