An inventory of the church made in 1549 by Sir William Smyth Curate there with John Tanner and William Chett Churchwardens recorded "in the stepyll iij belles and one hande bell" There are, however, now five bells in the belfry; the one that rings the hours is dated 1744, and other bells were made in 1777, 1808, and two in 1870. For many years, though, it has no longer been safe for the ancient wooden tower framework to have the bells pealed by swinging them with ropes, and they are now rung through the hammers and cords of a carillon arrangement.
