The old Tenor Bell at Shotwick, cast by John Scott of Wigan in 1664, and
kept at the foot of the tower, has reportedly been stolen.


A picture of the bell may be found on the Wirral Branch website then selecting Shotwick (from the clickable map)
then selecting picture gallery.


The church is located at the end of some half-a-mile of a narrow country
lane so it is perhaps a  little surprising that the thieves have taken the
risk of finding their only escape route blocked had someone in the village
noticed something strange happening and called the police.
