St Bridget's Parish Church

Moresby, Cumbria

United Kingdom

Following the closure of St John’s Cleator Moor and the removal of its bells, the Carlisle Diocesan Redundant Bells Group selected St Bridget’s, Moresby to become the recipient of a brand new ring of eight bells (tenor 5 cwts). The bells, being cast in October & November 2017, will be named after various saints and donors. New bell fittings and a new galvanised steel bell frame will be manufactured and installed to complete the work.

Update

  • All eight bells have now been cast. Proposed installation in the tower to begin February 2018.

  • All eight bells and their headstocks have now been cast, fettled and tuned, and they sound beautiful. The headstocks and wheels have been manufactured. The construction of the bell frame has been completed - it is being dismantled and off to the galvanisers.
