St Mary’s Parish Church

An order has been placed to remove this 14 cwt ring of eight and its fittings from the tower and bring it to Loughborough for restoration. After conservation work new ringing fittings will be manufactured for the bells before they are rehung in their existing bell frame.

Update

  • The bells and their fittings have been removed from the tower and transported to Loughborough. The bells have been cleaned by gentle sandblasting. The bell wheels are being manufactured.
