1802 Peal of 8 cast by Thomas Mears from the metal of the old 6.
c 1886 Rehung by S. Snelling.
[1] The church, which is dedicated to St. Peter and St. Paul, is a handsome building, consisting of three isles and three chancels, with a square tower at the west end of it, in which there is a clock, and six bells. It is built mostly of flint, but as a mark (The History and Topographical Survey of the County of Kent: Volume 6, Edward Hasted, 1798)
