This page is an archive about the Tower Appeal and Tower Restoration work that was undertaken between 2009 and 2012.

Project Diary

We have produced a diary of the work from the very beginning when the problem was discovered through to ringing resuming. Click here to read the diary.

Photographic Progress Reports

A member of the church regularly went up the tower with the contractors to photograph the progress. These were displayed for members of the public to read. Click the links below to see a few:

The bells going back

For the work in the tower to be carried out, the bells had to be removed for the first time in nearly 200 years. This YouTube video is a film of the tenor bell being winched back into the tower.
