Conservation by Re-use
Helping churches acquire surplus and/or redundant bells to be hung for
English-style full-circle bell-ringing.
Fulham, Greater London,
The ring of ten bells was restored and a service bell added during 2014.
The additional bell has an interesting history; it was cast in 1961 by the Whitechapel Bell Foundry and was put on loan to Cambridge University where Brian Threlfall undertook research into the factors which cause clappers to strike the wrong side of a bell. Brian’s research has proved to be of enormous benefit to the bell-hanging trade. On return from the university it was used as a demonstration bell by the Whitechapel Bell Foundry until it was installed at St Dunstan-in-the-West, London. It was removed during 2012 when a newly cast ring of ten bells was installed at St Dunstan’s.
