Description

The plaque reads:

'Rules to be observ'd by Ringers.

Put off your Hats, your Bells & Spurs.

And when you ring make no Demurs.

Sound out Bells well if you can.

Silence is best for ev'ry Man.

But if a Bell you overthrow.

Six Pence unto the Clerk you owe.

John Hopps & John Young.

Church Wardens 1746'
