Four trebles were added to the existing two medieval bells to create a ring of six in 1893. Four years later two trebles were cast to complete the octave. The ring was not a complete success, the poor sound and cramped conditions in the ringing chamber left a lot to be desired.

In 2008 a decision was taken to reduce the ring to six bells and improve the ringing circle. This work was duly completed in 2009 and the Trust found new homes for the two surplus treble bells.

Both bells were retuned and the old treble is now the treble of the octave at Menangle, NSW and the old second is the treble of five at Newnham, Hampshire.
