The picture middle-right is the former church of Emmanual, New Brighton and to the right of the ex-New Brighton bell being lifted into the tower at Singleton.


The bell installation project was completed on 5th January 2001.

After the project launch three more surplus bells were offered , giving  the 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th, 7th and tenor of the proposed ring of eight bells – all of which are “modern” bells cast by the same bell-founder.

The Trust donated the ex-New Brighton bell to the Singleton bells project.

The Trust had been looking for suitable second-hand and/or redundant bells for this project for some years. The breakthrough came in 1997 when Rev. Chris Boyce, vicar of New Brighton asked if we could find a “new” home for the bell from the redundant church of Emmanual. This we acquired using our Bell Rescue Fund. The following year we were offered a bell from Rangemore Hall, Staffordshire. We then had two bells to go with Singleton’s existing clock bell. Three bells available, five to go!
