Leeds, Seacroft, West Yorkshire
St James' Parish Church
This church has placed an order to augment their 1985 Taylor ring of five (tenor 4 cwts) with a new treble bell. The bell frame and fittings all date from 1985, and at that date a six bell frame was installed. New ringing fittings will be manufactured and installed with the bell. We hear from David Kelly that the new treble will be yet another bell gifted by the Keltek Trust.
This bell was cast on 7th February 2019. It has now been fettled and tuned.. The cast iron headstock has been manufactured, and the bell wheel is under construction. The bell has had its headstock fitted and is ready for its final polish.
Installation in the tower is now complete.
