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

English-style full-circle bell-ringing.

Buckland Dinham, Somerset

St Michael & All Angels

The ring of six bells had been unringable from the 1950’s until the completion of an ambitious restoration program in 1994 to replace the rotten bell-frame and augment to eight bells. The heavier of the two ex-St Paul’s, Bristol bells is now the 2nd of the ring. This bell is the first bell donated by our trustees.

Surviving church records tell of local ringers being paid 5 shillings for beer, for ringing on November 5th each year in memory of the 1605 Gunpowder Plot. This tradition was kept up until 1878.
