27 May
Hawkesbury (St Mary the Virgin) South Gloucestershire.

We are delighted to have installed a brand new ringing peal of eight bells (tenor 11-3-23 in G). A new steel bell frame has been installed immediately below the existing medieval bell frame which houses a single (10cwt) bell. The new bells were designed and tuned in our works, and cast by Emanuele Allanconi in Crema, Milan. A gallery ringing chamber has been constructed to create a vestry at ground floor level.  You can see part of the test ring here and here

The new moulds being made.
