The new ring replaces a small ring of 3 bells which were provided for the church clock in the 1870s and later adapted for change-ringing. The Trust has helped with the re-location of the surplus bells.


Christ Church Hampstead and the

Betjeman Bell Project


Christ Church, Hampstead, with the aid of The Keltek Trust, has been successful in purchasing four redundant bells, largest 24-0-7 in E-flat from the now redundant church of St. Luke, Cowley, Oxford.


They were installed during 2005 as 1,3,5 and tenor of the ring of eight bells for the church's 150th anniversary, and in honour of Sir John Betjeman, who captured so uniquely the poetic beauty of churches and their pealing bells. The four additional bells were cast at the Whitechapel Bell Foundry to Gillett & Johnston profiles.
