St Peter's Church, Slinfold

Details of the bells

The oldest bell (5), from 1704 is by Gulielmus (or William) Eldridge, last of the Eldridge dynasty of bellfounders initially from Wokingham, but latterly of Chertsey. The next oldest (2) and the only other one to predate the rebuild is from 1741 and was cast by Robert Catlin a well known founder of St Andrew's in Holborn. The remaining 4 bells, installed during the rebuild, are by John Warner & Sons of Cripplegate, the company who cast the original Big Ben bell (This first bell unfortunately cracked during its public display before being hung in Westminster and was subsequently recast by another foundry).
