History

Built in 1881 by C Purdon Clarke.  The tower has been strengthened with internal concrete buttresses and a ring-beam at the base of the spire.

Bells

Six bells hung for full-circle ringing.  Unusually the clock mechanism takes pride of place in the centre of the ringing room causing a certain degree of obstruction to some of the ringers!
