The Bells (6) 8-0-22 - Restored 2004
In 2004 the six bells had their cast-in wrought iron staples drilled out and were retuned. The existing 6-bell frame was restored and strengthened and the six bells were rehung with completely new ringing fittings.
At that time the 4th was found to be cracked and was taken to Soundweld for repair.
