Records of bells at Howden go back to 1595 when five bells were installed. Few details are available of the early bells but in 1775 a new ring of 8 were cast by Pack and Chapman of London with a 27 cwt. tenor. Taylors recast the treble and tenor in 1869 and the fifth in 1909. On October 9th 1929 a disastrous fire destroyed everything in the tower. Taylors recast and rehung a lighter eight in 1932 which are regarded as being among the best in the country
