In 2001  work was carried out by Whites of Appleton on the front four bells of the ring of six. They where re-tuned, leaving the 5th and "listed" tenor bells uncut, and were rehung in the restored wrought-iron double-bar bell frame with new ringing fittings.  The pitch of the tenor is B flat, minus 42/100 of a semitone.

The bells were re-dedicated on Sunday, 29th July 2001.

St Bartholomew Brightwell Baldwin

Currently the bells are rung regularly for services twice a month - on the third Sunday for a 10 o'clock Family Service, and on the fourth Sunday for 6 o'clock Evening Prayer.  In addition to this, they are rung for the Festivals and other special services. 

Practices are held fortnightly on a Saturday morning according to people's availability.
