Child Okeford (St Nicholas) Dorset.


30 Sep

The original 17cwt ring of six has been remodeled into a lighter peal of six. The new peal has a tenor weight of 10¾cwt and are all harmonically tuned. Two of the original bells remain as the 3rd and 4th of the new peal, the remaining bells having come from Murston in Kent, having previously formed part of a clock chime for 'The News of The World' building in Fleet Street, London. The four ex Child Okeford bells have been relocated to Lytchett Minster, Newcastle upon Tyne, Buckhorn Weston and Chilham.
