Much Cowarne, Herefordshire,

St Mary


The ring of six bells had not been rung for many years. Church Bells of Herefordshire by Frederick Sharpe published in 1969 states that  the tenor bell is badly cracked in the sound bow, probably due to “clocking”, evidence of which was found in the tower.


To encourage a restoration project the Trust offered to donate a replacement tenor bell. The bells were restored during 2009 and thanks to a generous grant the cracked tenor was weld repaired and our replacement tenor bell was not needed.
