the names and details of the bells are given below:
Total Weight: 5 tonnes 34 kg
A point of interest is that the treble and the third bells are of the same weight, yet they sound very different. This is achieved at the time of tuning, a process taken following casting. Older bells can be, and indeed are, re-tuned when the bells are restored.
The bells are hung on one level in a metal frame, which was installed in 1990 to replace an older wooden one. The ring was augmented with the Treble and Second at the same time.
