Short Bell Recording of rounds by Coventry Diocesan Guild

Formerly a ring of 3 these bells were rehung and augmented to 6 in 1976/7 and are a pleasant ring of 6 in good condition. The old frame is still in situ above the new one. It is a tall frame made of oak, consisting of cills, main braces, king posts, corner posts, and long frame heads. The old bells have had their canons removed, the trebles cast flat headed. The new frame is a composite “lowside” frame, with steel cills and frameheads with intermediate cast iron braces
