According to L'Estrange there was a single bell: G. Mears, Founder, London=
. 1858.=20

Two bells recorded in inventory of Edward VI. One said to have been by Wm R=
evel. Presumably both went in 1858? Pevsner says that the tower was restor=
ed in 1868 and the rest of church completely rebuilt. I am wondering whethe=
r 1858 & 1868 have been confused somewhere but maybe not? Church Bells and =
Bell-Ringing (Cattermole) suggests that the frame might have been earlier. =
The is a comparison with East Carleton.

The dedication (St Wandregeselius) said to be unique in England. No one of =
that name mentioned in my copy of the Peguin Book of Saints!

A sad story. Reminiscent of Buckfastleigh, although there the tower and bel=
ls were subsequently restored.
