St Mary's Parish Church, Richmond, North Yorks
Thanks to the generosity of so many we have been able to cast a new set of 8 bells, replace the water-damaged 1895 oak frame with an iron and steel frame, and refurbish our five 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 a set of 8 tuned bells. The bells are in the key of G and were cast in 2016 by John Taylor Foundry and rung for the first time in May 2017. The tenor weighs 11cwt - 1qr - 12lb (577kg, 91 stone).
A 500 year old tradition has been preserved. Church bells will continue to be heard in Richmond now and into the forseeable future..
Come and see us. All are welcome, from absolute beginner to accomplished expert. See contact details
Tuesdays, 7.30 pm is our practice night. Sunday ringing is at 9:30 am
