This 16 cwt ring of eight, together with its bell frame and fittings will be removed from the tower for a major restoration project. A new ten bell  “lowside” cast iron and galvanised steel bell frame will be manufactured. Two new treble bells will be cast, and the tenor bell recast, the other bells being tuned. New fittings will be manufactured for all the bells, and the augmented ring will then be rehung in the tower.

Update

  • All bells cast and tuned. New headstocks have been manufactured and gudgeons fitted. All ten bell wheels have now been manufactured. The building of the new bell frame has been completed - it is now being galvanised.
