Bellringing at St Peters
St Peter’s Church at Wellesbourne has a ring of eight bells with a tenor weighing 10cwt 0qtr 24lb tuned in the key of G. The back six bells were cast in 1681 by Henry Bagley of Chacombe, Northamptonshire and the two trebles were added 300 years later in 1981; these were cast by John Taylor Bellfounders Ltd of Loughborough.
