St Edmund King & Martyr

Costessey, Norfolk

United Kingdom

This ancient 11 cwt ring of five dating from 1525 & 1656 is to be removed from the tower for a full restoration. The existing cast iron frame, which is the work of S G Soame and dates from 1905, is to be retained. New fittings will be manufactured for bells 1, 3, 4, & 5, and the present modern 2nd bell fittings are to be restored and reused. No tuning of the bells is allowed, but conservation work to them, including the drilling out of their iron crown staples, will be carried out before they are rehung.
