In memory of John Hunt, killed by the treble at Wilmslow 250 years ago. At the back of the ringing chamber in St Bartholomew's Church [Wilmslow], just above the door on the left hand side, there is a stone that reads "John Son of Robe[rt] and Penelope Hunt was killed by the first Bell on Sunday Augu[st] the 30th 1767". It seems the teenage boy managed to sneak into the belfry when no one was looking, and was accidentally killed when he was hit by the moving bell.
