The Bells

There are six bells hung for full circle change ringing and two hung for chiming. The six were overhauled in 2009, the tenor weighing 6-0-26. That’s 317kg for metric people.

The two chimes were formerly the #3 (dated c1499) and #5 (dated 1621) in the ring declared unfit for ringing in 2001.

Full details are available on the Dove’s page.

So far, two full peals have been rung on these bells: the first, in October 2011, Surprise Minor conducted by Roy LeMarechal; the second, in March 2012, Surprise Minor conducted by Richard Pearce.
