The six bells at Thornhill were the original six from St Mary Mirfield
before the new church was built and the distinctive ten installed -
transferred in 1871. Before this Thornhill had three seventeenth century
bells the treble of which went to Middlestown before in turn going into the
St Wilfrid's Harrogate melting pot.

Thornhill must have one of the best transfer lists of any tower.
