The Bells of the Church of St Peter Old Hurst
The Bells of the Church of St Peter Old Hurst

The Church of St Peter in Old Hurst has two bells which are clearly visible from the outside.

They are:
22½ ins – Cast by James Keene of Woodstock in 1630
23½ ins – Inscribed H HVNSTON R WEST C W 1705

If you look carefully at the picture you will see that the wooden headstock on the right hand bell is looking a little wonky and in 2013  both bells were taken down and repaired.  Take a look here.
