Gallery : The Bells

The oldest Bell is a rare pre-reformation example and dates back to the early 1400s. Its inscription is "Sit Nomen Domini Benedictum" (blessed be the name of the Lord).

In 1883 an appeal raised enough money for five more bells. Their inscriptions are "Venite Exultemus Domino" (Come, let us exult in the Lord), "Te Deum Laudamus" (We Praise You,  God) , "Soli Deo Gloria Pax Hominibus" (Glory to God alone, peace to men), "Gloria in Excelsis Deo" (Glory to God on High).

The ring was was augmented to eight as a "Ringing-in-The-Millennium" project and hung in a new cast-iron bell frame on a steel grilllage during 1999.

The peal is tuned to the key of A flat (810Hz).
