The Church Tower in Pictures.
Detail of Bell
The Bell is dated 1639.
Bell in Cradle Crack

(Above right): The Tower was in urgent need of repair as large cracks had appeared inside and outside. A temporary repair was made to the outside to prevent further damage by the weather,
but inside one of the cracks on the East Wall looked like this.

A generous grant towards the cost of repair was given by English Heritage,
but we had to match the amount, £38,000. We also received a generous grant from 
"The Historic Churches Preservation Trust".

The Tower is now fully restored.
Relined Roof

The parapet has been re-leaded and the roof re-tiled and lined.
Thank you to all those who gave so generously to the appeal.

This Tambourine was presented to the church by Miss E. Shrubsole. It was played by her father, Albert Shrubsole, then aged ten years, in the church Orchestra in 1897.
