The first ever time that the bells have been chimed by a clock in the approximately 750 year period of the church's existence.
Filmed at 9:00am on Tuesday 21st December 2021.
Many thanks to Neil Thomas and Andrew Barham of Matthew Higby & Company Ltd who came to do the work, and to Whites of Appleton who supplied the control unit for the chimes.
We will be finishing off the project with new ropes and dumb bells in the New Year, and watch this space for details of a summer 2022 celebration to welcome in the new bells properly.
