Removing the Bells

The Bells Depart

The bells leave Presteigne, Monday 26th October 2015.

Painting the Frame

Work continued in the belfry. The cast iron frame had to be rubbed down and painted. We chose 2 coats of Rustoleum "Steel Grey" to lighten the belfry and complement the blue of the returning headstocks.

Installing Sound Control

Sound control is added as part of the project. This allows us to reduce the volume of the bells outside the church if we need to.
