This is a 19th century church with south-west tower.
Beckwithshaw has a peal of six bells hung for full-circle ringing.
They were cast in 1886 (Mears & Stainbank)
The inscriptions on each bell are the founders and the names of the donor, his wife and their children.
The tower contains a two tier wooden frame with bells 1, 3 and 5 hanging above 2, 4 and 6 respectively which is coeval with the bells. The third bell is pictured. Each bell hangs from its original wooden headstock though a restoration has seen the fitting of independent crown staples and ball bearings. The third has an SG clapper whilst those of the others are wrought iron. Traditional stays and sliders.
