An Early Start


Tuesday 1st August 

An early start and the welcome arrival of a second bell hanger from John Taylor. The two men worked late into the day preparing for the lowering in the morning. 

Wednesday 2nd August  

The five bells start coming down. Our oldest bell, c.1450, has been in the tower for 600 years. 

By the end of the day, the bells were safely resting on the floor of the tower. By nightfall, it was time for the guards to take over and the bells were watched over throughout the night by a small band of volunteers.
