Helping churches acquire surplus and/or redundant bells to be hung for

English-style full-circle bell-ringing.

Hosted on a Memset server

Bishopstoke, Hampshire

The pre-1995 ring at Bishopstoke, Hampshire was a collection of medieval, Llewellyn & James and Warner bells of incompatible tonal characteristics. We assisted in finding “new” homes for several bells. The old Warner treble was eventually used to augment the ring of five bells at Tredington, Gloucestershire to a ring of six. The bell originally being sold to another church before eventually  installed at Tredington.

The old Warner second is now part of the ring at Wagga Wagga, NSW.

The two medieval bells are now the trebles of the ring of six bells at St James, Immingham, Lincolnshire and one of the Llewellin & James bells is now part of the clock chime at St Anne’s, Limehouse, London.
