About the bells
The eight ringing bells, were cast by Gillett & Johnston of Croydon in 1912, and hung in a new cast iron frame
Until February 2016 there were also three bells cast by John Taylor & Co in 1883 for the now demolished daughter church of St John. Bell metal from two of these will be used to cast our new trebles of ten. The smallest bell will be restored and retained as a service bell.
Sunday Service Ringing:
With our bells out of action we will be assisting local towers. Come and join us!
