St Mary Mapledurwell

The plain boarded turret contains three bells hung for chiming: 

* The oldest is inscribed “+ JOHANNES : EST : NOMEN : EJUS”. The cross on the bell is the mark of the London bell-founders William and Robert Burford (1373-1418). It is the sole remaining example of a bell of this particular class left in Hampshire.

* The second bell is inscribed “LOVE GOD 1659”

* The third is inscribed “RICHARD ELDRIDGE MADE ME 1620”.
