Details of the old ring of 3 can be found in A.H.Cocks The Church Bells of Buckinghamshire, page 312.
Church leaflet says “The tower is open to the nave at ground level, the bells being rung from this position. The belfry (not open to visitors) is reached by a long ladder. The timbered bell chamber and shingled spire of 1680 were restored by Street. The three original bells were recast into a peal of five in 1912 by Gillett and Johnson of Croydon. There is also a Sanctus bell dated 1695. (Details of inscriptions if you need them)”Travel Details: OS Grid Ref: SP771371 park on road
