17th November 2016 was the beginning of a new era in Richmond ringing as our first new bells were cast at John Taylor's bell foundry, Loughborough
Our two-tier oak bell frame was unstable due to water damage which was making ringing the bells increasingly difficult . Replacement was recommended 90 years ago! After a two year appeal enough money was raised for a replacement frame and to replace the eclectic mix of old bells with a new tuned set of bells and install variable sound control. Our five bells of historic interest are displayed for all to enjoy. A Heritage Lottery Grant allowed us to research the history of bells, bell ringing and bell ringers in Richmond over the past 500 years.
