All bells were cast by Charles and George Mears at Whitechapel in 1853. They were tuned and hung in a new frame installed by John Taylor and Co. in 1963. All the bells have lost their cannons, and hang in a metal low-sided frame. (Pickford 6.1: A1, B2, C3, D4, E5, F6)

The ringing room is reached via the west gallery and is not improved by the smell of heating oil from the boiler. Limited parking is available outside the churchyard gate.
