The Bells

The church has a ring of six bells, cast by William Evans of Chepstow (so a local founder) in 1765
The weights are:
Treble – 3cwt 3qtr 19lbs
2 – 4cwt 1qtr 3lbs
3 – 4cwt 2qtr 14lbs
4 – 5cwt 2qtr 20lbs
5 – 6cwt 1qtr 10lbs
Tenor – 8cwt 2qtr 3lbs

Bell weights are traditionally given in cwts, quarters and pounds where 1cwt =112lbs so 1qtr = 28lbs

Ringers would desribe them as an 8½cwt six.
