All Saints Church was licensed for worship in 1865 following the constitution of the Parish of Benhilton in 1863. The original peal of 8 bells was inaugurated 1st November 1893. The All Saints’ Benhilton Society of Change Ringers was formed in 1896. Except for the 1939-1945 war years, regular ringing has been carried out for all services and special occasions. In 1970, a D.I.Y restoration of the tower and bells was begun, with the new ring of bells dedicated in 1971. To this day the Society remain an enthusiastic and dedicated band.
