Frame and Fittings

Wooden frame for three bells occupying only a fraction of the large bell chamber. The bells hang from wooden headstocks and traditional gear including plain bearings.  This will all date from 1852 as supplied by Mears although several minor repairs have kept the bells in ringable order.

Clock

A now disused two train clock stands on the floor of the ringing chamber.
