Major maintenance work has been completed to improve this Victorian 10 cwt ring of six. Four of the bells have been lifted and rotated in their pits to create a better ringing circle. New rope roller boxes, sliders and runner boards have been manufactured and installed, together with a new rope guide. The ringing chamber has been relocated from the ground floor to first floor level.

Update

  • Further maintenance work to this 10 cwt Mears & Stainbank six has been completed. The installation dates from 1878 & 1894 and work by Taylors to the bell frame, clappers and rope rollers in 2014 & 2016 brought the ring back into use. The tenor & 5th bells headstocks have now been removed and fitted with new plate gudgeons and bearings and those bells rehung.

  • Various maintenance work has been undertaken in recent years to keep this Mears & Stainbank 1894 installation in a ringable condition. The two treble headstocks have now been fitted with new plate gudgeons and ball bearings at Loughborough and these two bells have now been rehung.
