St John's, Hensingham is part of the Western Branch of the Carlisle Diocesan Guild of Bellringers.
The Hensingham bells are fitted with Hastings stays used by the Taylor's foundry between 1895 and 1960.
The Hensingham tower has a restored Ellacombe Apparatus meaning the bells can be rung with out the need for ringers.
In England church bells are rung by swinging them through nearly a full circle, this gives them their unique tones as the ringing bell is moving backwards and forwards.
