Restoration Project 2020

Part 1

 

On 20th July 2020, Robin, Nigel and Emma set to work in the tower at St Mary’s, Puddletown, removing the clappers from all the bells, and the ropes and stays from the 5th & 6th bells, ready to enable Taylor’s Bell Foundry at Loughborough to make a start with the restoration work next week.
