St. James’ Church Bells Are Back!

Awaiting installation

In May the bells were removed from St. James’ Church tower for restoration and tuning.  Today they’re being re-installed.  It’s a precision operation requiring a very large crane.  The biggest bell only has 3/4 inch clearance on either side of the opening.

Here they are awaiting installation.  We’ll head back this afternoon to see the rest of the process.  Stay tuned!

Two years ago: Bradshaws is Ready


  1. Perfect if they'll be ready for Christmas ringing! Ding a ling ding!

  2. Yes indeed, with a bit of time for the bellringer to practise. They added four new bells to the array...


Well hello there! What do you think?
