St Lawrence BellsThe bells of St Lawrence are still rung on Sundays, with bell ringing practice on a Wednesday evening. If you are interested in taking up the hobby, why not come and see what happens, contact us and we will be delighted to show you and maybe even get you to try a little ringing yourself. You don’t have to be musical or strong, our youngest ringer started when she was nine. Two of the bells in St Lawrence date back to the Thirteenth Century, amongst the oldest in the country. There are six in total but these are hanging in the tower, and visitors cannot see them, however there is a bell dating back to the Fifteenth century which became damaged over time and was replaced in 1981, it now hangs in the South Aisle for visitors to be able to view.
