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

English-style full-circle bell-ringing.

Hosted on a Memset server

The four treble bells are to become the back four of a replacement ring of eight at Lichfield, St Chad. It is expected that four new bells will be cast to complete the ring.

The sixth and seventh bells are to go to Laxfield, Suffolk and it is expected that six new bells  will be cast to complete the octave.

The fifth and tenor bells are to replace the two Hugh Watts bells (7th and tenor) at Kempston, Bedfordshire.

Prinknash Abbey, Gloucestershire

The Keltek Trust acquired the chime of eight bells from Prinknash Abbey during May 2015. The bells had been installed in a temporary structure awaiting installation into the Abbey tower. However it was never built and the bells have not rung out as they were originally intended but hung dead and chimed by hammers.

We are pleased to report that subject to faculties being granted and fund-raising the bells are to be relocated to three churches in the UK and all will be hung for traditional full-circle ringing.
