The Bells (3) 4-0-0#

Access to ringing chamber: Ground floor

Most of the bell information below comes from John E. Hearn The Rings and Chimes Of Buckinghamshire Churches, page 38.
The inscriptions are from A.H.Cocks The Church Bells of Buckinghamshire, page 430.
The square belfry turret with a broach spire has 3 bells hung for full-circle ringing but they are only chimed because the frame is too unsteady.

A ring of 3; tenor 4-2-0#, diameter 27”.

Notes

  1. Because of the lettering, Cocks suggests that the second bell may have been cast by John Appowel at the Buckingham foundry in the late 16th century. Some of the letters are inverted and used to have crowns.
  2. The ‘N’ in ‘KING’ on the tenor is reversed.
  3. Dove quotes a weight of 4-0-0# for the tenor.
