Notes

The old 24-2-22 twelve have been removed and the new installation was dedicated on 29th February 2004. A flat 6th bell was also added. Entry is by a small door to the right of the main entrance to the Church. The ringing chamber is reached via 40-50 steep spiral stairs. There is no vehicular access from the Ring Way, please approach via Churchfields. There is parking for 10 cars at the back of the church. Alternatively, a pay and display at the front of the church, which is free after 1900 and Sundays. The food at Sainbury's restaurant near the church is good and has toilet facilities. Even better is the King and Castle pub which is the bar at the Severn Valley Railway terminal, where ringers often retire after a peal. It serves a good food and a lovely pint of Batham's too. Access to nearby town via a subway on the South side.
