Historic England has an entry for this church at:


"The original peal of six bells was recast in 1829 as a peal of eight bells by Thomas Mears of London."

I have never before come across the suggestion that the 1829 ring replaced an earlier one. As the church was completed in 1719, it is entirely possible that this is the case.  Does anyone have any details of what was in the tower prior to 1829? The inscriptions reveal nothing of a possible recast.

Many thanks
