An article on these bells appeared in the Richmond and Ripon Chronicle of 18th September, 1858.

There were formerly three bells. The treble is now missing, and the story is that it was taken to Great Ouseburn. The present tenor is said to have been brought from Fountains Abbey, to which the church was attached.
