Frame and Fittings
Hung in a low side cast-iron frame with modern fittings dating from the restoration of 1957/58 by John Taylor of Loughborough. The back three have large canon retaining headstocks and the front three are on plain headstocks - the canons of the second having been removed.
The pendulum of the clock passes from the first floor, through the ground floor ringing chamber and on into a pit some four feet deep.
