The ringing chamber is on the ground floor at the west end of the church. There are a number of painted panels displayed which record past events such as the installation of the bells and the peals that have been rung. One of the panels records the first (part) peal to be rung in Cornwall. This was achieved on these bells in 1864 under the leadership of Harry Trelawny.

An Ellacombe chiming apparatus, which is no longer useable, is installed on the south wall of the chamber.

We Ring the Quick to Church, the dead to grave

Good is our Use such Usage lett us have,

Who swears or Curse or in a Cholerick mood

Quarrels or strike altho he draw no blood

Who wears his Hat or Spur or turns a Bell

or by unskilfull handling marrs A Peal

Let him pay Six pence for each Single crime

Twill make him Cautious against another time

So when the Bells are ceased then lett us Sing

God bless our holy Church, God Save the King.

thes Bells was cast in the year 1773 & the Tower new leaded.
