The Bells at Buxton

A new treble bell was installed in April 2023, replacing the earlier treble which developed a crack and was removed in September 2022.

The bells were last overhauled in 2006 by Hayward Mills Associates. The peel of six bells was tuned, turned, and rehung with mainly new fittings in the existing bell frame.
