Frame and Fittings
The small bell hangs in a wooden frame from a wooden headstock with iron chiming lever. There are two clock hammers - one from a previous clock and the other associated with the present clock.
The large bell hangs from a girder across the north east corner of the tower and has two clock hammers - one for the quarters and one for the hour.
A three train clock by Potts of Leeds 1900. The quarter chiming train has been dismantled but formerly sounded ting-tang quarters on the two bells. This may have been a most unpleasant sound as the bells are nearly a semitone more than an octave apart!!!
