Return of the Bells to Whitchurch





An exciting day as the lorry bringing our bells arrives at the church. With lots of help from the ringers and villagers the bells and all the new fittings are unloaded and carried into the church. The bell hanger from Taylors, sets up the hoists and gradually all the new parts are lifted up to the ringing chamber. Then one by one the bells are raised up to the frame. Over the next few days the wheels and clappers are fixed in place.
Another week and the bells should be ready to peal out again over the Marshwood Vale.
