*Links:

The church Website has a partial photo of the building in the page heading, and others both there and in a splendid gallery under Heritage.  But there is no information about the building or the bells.

The ANZAB Webpage about this ring has at least a photo of the tower, and possibly additional information.

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