Conservation by Re-use
Helping churches acquire surplus and/or redundant bells to be hung for
English-style full-circle bell-ringing.
Rufforth, North Yorkshire,
The three Warner bells (tenor 3 cwt) have been replaced with a ring of six bells based on the lightest four of the Grainger’s Lane Methodist church, Cradley Heath, chime. Two new treble bells were added to the modern Taylor bells to complete the ring of six. The new tenor weight is 3-3-9.
The Trust acquired the old ring of three bells and the two tenors have been installed at Otterham as part of the project to augment from three to six. The remaining bell is now a clock bell at Eastbach Court, English Bicknor (picture below).
