These bells sound different - the locals think inside they are not too nice but outside are very pretty. The bells are classed as a minor six but ring as a 2 to 7 of a ring of eight. The frame is dated from 1769 and bells were last properly rehung by Taylors in 1924. The treble was added in 1950 and has a headstock welded by Gordon Lane.
The church suffered a lightning strike in 1880's and was rebuilt in 1887 after the nave being roofless for a number of years.
