Project Video Library

On this page you’ll find a selection of videos taken during the refurbishment project.

The Treble Descends

The treble was the first bell to be lowered. This video shows it descending through the ringing room to the church porch below. The ting-ting-ting noise is the bell rubbing against the chain from the winch.

The Tenor Lands!

Tense moments as the tenor is coaxed through the hole in the ringing room floor. There is barely an inch of clearance as the tenor descends like an alien spaceship.

Blessing the Bells

A short service to bless the bells was held on 10th April 2016 before work began to reinstall the bells back in the tower. The service was led by Rev. Preb. Stephen Hollinghurst.

The First Ring

This is the first ring of the refurbished bells by the local team. From left to right Roger Pickard (3), Noel Anderson (6), Tim Hollinghurst (7), Graham Clifton of Whites (8), Margaret Anderson (2). Lynn Scales is calling the changes and her arms are visible on the 5th. Roy Stickling’s arms are visible on the treble. Marian Pickard rang the fourth but is not visible in this video.
