Photo 1: The Ringing Chamber looking towards the entrance. The ringing chamber is accessed via a well lit spiral staircase which has a handrail. 

Photo 2: The belfry. The prominent bell in this photo is the second the bell to its right is the fifth, note the orange which helps give the bells scale. The bells at the back are the third and fourth.

   

 

 

 

 

 

Photo 3: The bells are on two levels this is the lower level showing the treble and the tenor, again the orange helps give scale.

Photo 4: The Tenor. The bells are kept rung up because of their weight. This photo is upside-down so the inscription may be read. The tenor with the clapper weights over two ton.
