New bells from old

Bell being cast

A group of Alvechurch bellringers travelled to the Whitechapel Foundry, London, to see the casting of three new bells for St Laurence Church.

The bells should all be back in the tower this month in time for the Queen’s Jubilee and ringers have been clearing the tower ready for the installation.

The wood from the old frame has been sold for salvage and some of the old fittings have been sold as spares to other towers.
