*Links:

The church Website has information about the bells on the Music page, and there is a Photo Album about the ringers.  The Welcome page shows the top of the original belltower (though its 1897 Meneely/Troy single bell, which replaced an 1874 bell from the same foundry, is not visible).  But there appears to be no depiction of the new belltower.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Whitechapel bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
