Surbiton, Surrey

St Matthew's Parish Church.

United Kingdom

This church houses a Warner set of eight hemispherical bells (tenor 3 cwts), together with a separate sanctus bell. The entire installation will be dismantled and brought back to Loughborough. The hemispherical bells will be cleaned and tuned and the entire mechanisms restored. The bell frame will be strengthened. The sanctus bell will be conserved and a new headstock and fittings for trigger action chiming will be manufactured before rehanging in the tower.

Update

  • These hemispherical bells and the single chiming bell have been removed from the tower and are now at the Foundry.

    Work to restore all the frame and fittings is underway. Tuning has also been completed.
    The bell frame has been restored and strengthened and the transmission components fully renovated or newly manufactured.
