  • Cottesbrooke. Bell recorded in an inventory, dated 1552.
  • Crick. Founder’s initials and date, I.K. 1632 ( “I” may be a 17th.c version of “J” )
  • Lilbourne. Bell originally hung in a bell-cot over the Chancel arch. Removed during the early 19th. century and stored in the Church, became subsequently lost or sold. Bell-cot removed during renovations in the late 20th. century.
