Frame and Fittings
Formerly hung from traditional ringing fittings in a wooden frame. Traditional stays and sliders, clock hammer on the tenor and Ellacombe hammers to all three. Crudely made wheels. The bells are now hung from new wooden headstocks with wooden chiming levers and with ball bearings. The bells are tucked up to allow for easier swing chiming.
A two train clock by Benson of London.
