History

1695 A fire in the corn chandler's property spread to the tower bringing both it and the bells down.
1696 A new ring of 6 was cast by Philip Wightman.
1759 5th was removed and its clapper was mended. The bell was recast by Lester & Pack.
1800 Work took place on the bells.
1847 Work took place on the bells.
1913 Bells rehung by Alfred Bowell with steel headstocks. [1]
1928 Bells again attended to.
1976 Oct. All ringing stopped as the tower and frame were found to be unsafe. This necessitated a new ring beam to be installed.
1978 Bells retuned and rehung with new fittings in a new frame by Whitechapel hung lower in the tower.
[1] To rehanging the six bell £94. Paid cq. 6 June 1913. (Bowell records, 10 May 1913)
