The belfry houses three bells. Two of these are the original 15th Century bells. The cannons have been removed and elm headstocks and wheels fitted. They have been rehung in cast-iron frames and are in good condition.
The bellringer's art is timeless and many men have rung the bells of Holy Cross in the past seven hundred years and I honour them. God bless all bellringers past, present and future.
