Helping churches acquire surplus and/or redundant bells to be hung for

English-style full-circle bell-ringing.

Hosted on a Memset server

New Shildon, Co. Durham, All Saints

The church was closed in 1999 and we were contacted in 2001 by an Antique dealer who had acquired the clock and three chiming bells.

The Trust acquired the bells in October 2001 and they have been relocated in other churches. The smallest bell has been installed at Potterhanworth, Lincolnshire; the middle bell at Caunton, Nottinghamshire and the largest bell at Sandford Orcas, Dorset.
