Bells

In 1740 there were three bells listed. In 1893, there were five bells which were rehung in cast-iron ‘H’ frames by Taylors of Loughborough. The frames are mounted on fabricated girders which consist of two pieces of channel mounted back to back with a gap between; these are riveted to a top plate. Taylors also added a new tenor bell at this time;  the cost was £207 16s. 3d.

The six bells in the tower in 2013 were:

(i) VENITE EXVLTEMVS DOMINO 1709

(ii) THOMAS LANCASHIRE VICAR THO:HIBBERT THO:WILSON CHURCH 1709 WARDENS

(iii) 1694 RECAST 1893

(iv)  BONV EST CONFILERI DOMINO R B

(v) SOLI DEO GLORIA 1641

(vi) RING IN THE NEW J:TAYLOR AND C.. BELLFOUNDERS LOUGHBOROUGH

(i) and (ii) are the work of the Smith foundry of York, probably by Samuel II Smith. The original (iii) bell was by an unknown founder as details of the inscription have been lost. Bell (iv) dates from the period 1560-80 and may be the work of Richard Brock who cast bells in the West Riding of Yorkshire. Bell (v) is by the Oldfield family, probably William working at Doncaster. Bell (vi) is by Taylors of Loughborough 1893.
