Known as the 'King of Holderness' the church dominates the small town of Hedon and provides the resident who cares to listen to one of the finest eights in the country.
After the dedication in 1929 a competent authority stated 'The beauty of Hedon bells is their clarity, no one bell dominates any of the others'. Hedon bells continue to be a delight to ring to this day.

Walkington has had bells since about 1552 founders unknown, in 1725 two bells were recast by Seller of York and the third by Harrison of Barton in 1798. By the 1950's the bells were in a bad state of repair and the decision was made to recast, rehang and augment to six. In 1959 the work was completed and the bells rang out. This modern ring of bells go very easily and a good standard of ringing is easily achievable
