Date:7th of November 1977

Description:The centre bell is the oldest dated bell in Staffordshire, and the seventh oldest in the country. The bell was cast by John of Colsale in 1409, and is one of only two medieval English bells in the country to carry both a date and the founder's name.

The remaining two bells are dated 1670 (right) and 1753 (left).

The bells were photographed after their return from Loughborough where they were sent for retuning in 1977.
