History

The tower was added to the church in the 15th Century. The present peal of six was recast and rehung in January 1937 by John Taylor & Co for the coronation of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth.
In October 1890 the old ring of five (cast in 1705 by Joseph Smith of Edgbaston) were provided with new fittings in an Oak frame.
In 1892 a new treble of six was recast. The inscription on the old 3rd bell cast in 1705 was typical of the Rudhall Foundry in Gloucester.
In 1899 the clock with Cambridge chimes was added to the tower.
It used to be a ground floor ring until 1985 when the height of the ringing room was raised to reduce the height of the rope draught and create a Choir Vestry and toilet facility.
