The Bell Restoration Committee

by Jay Bunyan


Ways in which the Committee  helps parishes undertaking a bell restoration project

We work with Guilds to support bell projects, and if desired, visit parishes with a Guild representative. We provide guildance notes on a variety of subjects for ringers and non ringers. These are available via the Central Council website -

In 2015, grants were allocated to Christ Church, Bath, St Mary Magdalen, Taunton; Templecombe and Whitestaunton in the Bath and Wells Diocese, as well as to other towers across the country.

A seminar on Bell Restoration was held at Horsington in September, new Guidance Notes have been issued and a new edition of Organising a Bell Restoration Project is about to be published.


There are eight members on the Committee, each with a well defined area of responsibility, and these areas are reviewed on a regular basis.
