The ring was formed when the three old bells in the tower, which up until then had been unringable, were taken down and tuned and made up to six by the addition of two trebles and a tenor. A new frame was installed for the bells. The work was carried out by Taylors Eayre & Smith Ltd and the new ring was dedicated on 4th June 2006.

The Tower Captain is Barbara Starmer (Mrs) whose address is 5 Cranmere Avenue, Northampton NN1 5SF, and telephone number 01604 624160.

Practice night is Tuesday starting at 7.30pm. Sunday service ringing is at 9.30am for a 10.00am service.
