Conservation by Re-use
Helping churches acquire surplus and/or redundant bells to be hung for
English-style full-circle bell-ringing.
Kelham, Nottinghamshire, St Wilfrid
The unringable ring of three bells was restored an a redundant bell added during the last quarter of 2015 and January 2016. It is now planned to add two trebles to complete the ring of six subject to fund-raising and faculty. The Trust has offered to donate a bell previously installed in the redundant church of St Simon & St Jude, Bolton, Greater Manchester. The photograph above right shows the bell in storage at Taylor’s Bellfoundry, Loughborough.
It will be a while before the bell is installed as an appeal is underway to repair the church roof.
