History

1552 Record of 4 bells. [1]
1723 Bells recast into a ring of 5 by Samuel Knight.
1759 Record of 5 bells in the tower. [2]
1799 Hasted does not mention bells.
1906 2 trebles (of 5) recast by Samuel Goslin and all the bells (unsatisfactorily) rehung in a new frame for 6.
1909 The 2 trebles (of 5) were again recast, this time by Mears & Stainbank, who cast another treble to make 6.
1959 Bells retuned and rehung in the strengthened frame by Mears & Stainbank.
