The Bells

In 1692, Abraham Rudhall I cast a ring of six for All Saints Church, four of which remain. Following the rebuilding of the church (1740-42) Abel Rudhall supplied two trebles in 1750 to complete the octave, and two years later added two more to make a ring of ten; at the time one of only some 30 rings of ten outside London. By 1792 the tenor had become cracked and was recast in 1805 by Thomas Mears & Son. In 1972  the bells were removed from the tower, tuned at Whitechapel who also supplied a new frame, and rehung in 1974 All work in the tower was done by local ringers and friends. The augmentation to twelve followed in 1977 and a Flat 6th was added in 2011; all by local labour as before.
