Bell Details

In AD 2008 the existing bell frame was repositioned in the bell chamber and extended and two bells were added to augment the ring to eight. The new 2nd was given by their three children in memory of Frank & Betty Ramage and the new treble given by Bob & Helga Gerhardi. The existing six bells were re-tuned and refurbished with part new ringing fittings. The exact pitch of the tenor is F# minus 29/100 of a semitone (727.6hz).
