7 Ring of five was completed in 1895 when old tenor bell was recast, a treble added and the three middle bells restored, turned and tuned. Expense was met by the Revd. Gilbert Beresford. Further restoration was carried out by Taylors of Loughborough in 2006. (ref b) During the latter restoration Bell 4’s wooden cap was found to be split into two pieces and a new silicon cap was created to replace it. The wooden one was repaired and it and two redundant wooden pulley wheels were adapted to become the body of a ‘spider’ which holds the bell ropes high above the floor of the ringing chamber when they are not being used.
