St Mary's Parish Church, Richmond, North Yorks
BELL RESTORATION APPEAL
Thanks to the generosity of so many, including a Heritage Lottery Fund grant, we now have enough money to cast the new bells, replace the bell frame, and refurbish the historic bells
Too many towers have fallen silent because of the high cost of repairs and maintenance.
At Saint Mary's we made a commitment to safeguard the future of bellringing by investing in the restoration of our historic bells and frame.
A 500 year old tradition will be preserved. Church bells will continue to be heard in Richmond now and into the next century and beyond.
Work has started to refurbish the old and install the new. Follow the work on our blog
All the bells have been removed and will be returned to the bellfounders for refurbishing. No more ringing until new and old bells return in May
The new bells are in the belfry. We hope ringing will restart in the next 2 weeks or so
Lord Dundas, Marquess of Zetland and The Right Rev'd James Bell, Bishop
