Conservation by Re-use
Helping churches acquire surplus and/or redundant bells to be hung for
English-style full-circle bell-ringing.
Thorpe Arnold, Leicestershire,
St Mary the Virgin
The ring of three bells was augmented to five during 2003 with the addition of two surplus bells. The Trust located one of these, the second of the ring of five, from a scrap metal dealer in Burton-on-Trent. It appears the bell was cast as a clock bell and installed at a private house in Staffordshire before being removed and sold for scrap.
