History

1635 Present 2nd cast.
1710 Treble cast by Matthew Bagley.
1732 Bells rehung in new frame for 6.
1969 Treble recast a semitone flatter, thus bringing the bells from a Lydian scale into a diatonic scale, all retuned and rehung in a new frame for 6. The Whitechapel card on the wall states this bell to be 4-0-13 rather than the weight given.
