History Of The Bells

This estate church is just off the old A34, now the A3400 - look for the signpost just south of Tredington. A pretty church with a ring of 6 rung from the ground floor. These were probably cast as a ring of five by Bagley and augmented by Rudhall to six in 1810. It is likely that this new bell was originally cast for Newnham on Severn, where the treble and tenor bells have proven to be unsatisfactory. Previously, the fourth required recasting in 1726.

The wooden frame and fittings are by Thomas Mallaby & Sons of Masham, 1892 (cost £90). The bells have been quarter turned and retain their canons.

The entrance is at the base of the tower and not through the church. The bells go reasonably well, some much needed routine maintenance being carried out recently.
