The pre-augmentation 2nd has been hung above the other bells and its pit taken by the pre-augmentation treble bell. The work was completed on 1st March 2000. The scheme is a significant milestone for the Trust because it is the first scheme to be completed which incorporates a bell acquired by our Bell Rescue Fund.

Langley Burrell, Wiltshire,

St Peter

St Peter’s has had a ring of four bells for over four hundred years. The current bells date from 1607 to 1628 and were probably cast by Roger Purdue of Bristol.  The inscription on the tenor is:


A week after the dedication of the new ring at Stratford-sub-Castle we visited Langley Burrell to record and tonally analyse the bells. The analysis suggested  the ex-Stratford-sub-Castle bell would  be suitable as the second of the proposed augmentation to six. This bell together with a newly cast bell have been hung in the  treble-pit of the existing wooden four-bell frame.
