All the bells were cast by John Warner & Sons of London in 1889. They hang from wooden headstocks in roller bearings in a wooden frame (Pickford 6.1: A1, B2, C3, D4, E5, F6). Each bell only has a single angular canon visible on each side of the headstock.
Access to the ringing room is via an external door at the south-west corner of the tower and a stone newel staircase.
