Until 1901 there were four bells in the tower, three of them dating from c17. In 1901, these bells were recast into a ring of six bells, by Taylor's of Loughborough. In 1988, two trebles, cast by Eijsbout's of Asten (Netherlands), were added by Eayre & Smith.
The bells were originally rung from the ground floor, but in 1980, a new floor was built, and the ringing chamber was moved upstairs.
Ringing at Oadby
There is an active local band, which rings all levels from rounds and call-changes through to surprise major, and we regularly ring quarter peals. Visitors are always welcome.
Oadby Ringing Centre
We normally organise regular training sessions on different aspects of ringing at the Oadby Ringing Centre.
Oadby is on the A6, on the south-east outskirts of Leicester.
