All bells were rehung on ball bearings in the late 1980s. The fourth bell is the work of the Seliok family circa 1500 and the sixth by Henry II Oldfield of Nottingham. These two bells were the two tenors of the old ring of four bells. The two trebles were cracked. The ring was restored in 1893 at the cost of R Ratcliffe of Stanford Hall.

The old treble was by Thomas Newcombe of Leicester circa 1580 and the second by Henry II Oldfield.
