Original octave by Thomas (I) Mears. The 1845 recastings (#1,2,4,7 of 8), by C&G Mears, were installed in 1846; the 1846 (or 1848?) recasting of the tenor was possibly installed in 1849, along with new flat 7th semitone. Treble recast in 1909; was accompanied by a modern chimestand to replace a much older crude one. Until Aug.2006, the original bells (and their replacements) were hung in their original change-ringing fittings, though without wheels, and so were deemed "unringable", though they could be played by electric chime system. Aug-Oct.2006: restored (by McShane) as a pure chime, augmented with a new sharp 4th semitone, and relocated above the new ring of 12 in the same tower.
