St Michael’s Church has a peal of six bells. The installation originally consisted of 3 bells cast by Henry Oldfield’s foundry in Long Row Nottingham. The oldest of these bells dates back to 1579. In 1879 two more bells were added and finally, in l977, a sixth bell was added to commemorate the Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee. The weights of the bells range from 4cwts 86lbs (Treble) to 17cwts 97lbs (Tenor).
Bell ringing takes place before Sunday morning service and at weekly practice on the 1st & 3rd Monday 7.30pm. Visiting ringers are very welcome.
