This 18 cwt ring of eight was created in 1949 and 1997 when Taylor’s rehung the back six on new fittings in a new cast iron & steel bellframe, and recast four of the six bells. Two new trebles were added in 1997 to complete the octave. Major maintenance work will now be carried out. The two old bells (4th & 6th) will be rehung on new cast iron headstocks of a better design than the pondorous ones available in 1949, and the six largest bells clappers and crown staples will be fully refurbished. The bellframe will be thoroughly cleaned and repainted to complete the project.

Update

  • The 4th & 6th bells, together with the fittings have been refurbished and rehung. The final work painting the bell frame will begin week commencing 29th March 2019.
