For this church:
Treswell St John the Baptist
Three bells, hung in a wooden frame with wooden headstocks and plain bearings. The treble is a late bell by George Hedderly of Nottingham. The second is an interesting bell with the badge ascribed to Thomas Bett of Leicester who was casting up to 1538. However, it also has the swastika ornament known to have been used by members of the Heathcote family of Chesterfield. Wilkinson notes that one John Bainbridge was one of the priors of Blyth in 1511 so clearly the bell dates from this period. The tenor has the same lettering as the second and it is also by Bett.
1552 – three grette belles
1740 – three bells.
Wooden frame, type Elphick W variant, Pickford Group 6.D variant with wooden headstocks. The variation occurs as the jack braces are offset on each principal brace and do not coincide at the same point.
The bells were inspected by Mick Exton on 8 April 1998.In 2013 the bells could be chimed but were not in a condition that would allow full circle ringing.
