Inscriptions

The tubular bells are uninscribed and the chiming bell is also blank.

Frame and Fittings

The five tubular bells are hung in a wooden frame in two rows; one row of three and one of two.  They are operated from the first floor room by an Ellacombe type rack. The single bell hangs in a small metal A frame and is fitted with a metal bar headstock and lever though there was no clapper at the time of my visit.  The rope passes through to the ground floor.
