History Of The Bells
These bells are hopelessly unringable, but the church is only a few hundred yards or so from a ringable, and rung, six at Henley in Arden. It is part of the same benefice. Follow the road down the side of Henley church in order to find the church, you can park by the church hall. The bells hang in a medieval frame with thin replacement timbers, early C18 fittings and C19 wheels; they sound the notes F, E and C#. The frame has been considerably altered during its lifetime and the bells "swing" East to West in parallel pits. All bells have their canons retained, (the second has three canons remaining - and three false iron ones) and none have been turned.
The bells were removed from the tower by Taylors on 21st July 2012. They are to be rehung in a new frame lower in the tower for 5/6 with the facility to retire the two trebles and to add 4/5 new bells to the tenor at some time in the future.
