The 130ft high spire contains six bells with a tenor weighing 8cwt. One (late 15th early 16th century) is inscribed in Latin “St John the Baptist, Pray for Us”. Three others date from the early 17th century, including a bell dated 1647, inscribed “God Save the King RS”. This was a brave act of loyalty by a Sneyd to a King who was soon to be beheaded.
