All the bells were cast by Taylors of Loughborough in 1931. They hang in a lowside cast-iron frame (Pickford 8.3 H1, A2, B3, C4, D5, E6, F7, G8) and are fitted with Hastings stays.
Access is via an external door at the NW corner of the tower and a rather narrow spiral staircase. The ringing room has a fascinating collection of photographs and other ringing memorabilia. The church car park is next to the British Legion Club 100 yards west of the church on Church Street. Otherwise public paying car park off Frogmore Street. The church has a toilet, and public conveniences can be found in Stafford Street and in the Frogmore Street car park. All the facilities of a busy market town are close at hand.
