Huntsham Tower Restoration

Video of the Bell & Tower Project - 2004

Huntsham bells and tower were in need of a complete restoration. It was needed to replace the tower roof, install electricity into the clock chamber, the bell chamber and the stairs and introduce a sound management system. The rotted wooden frame was to be replaced by a steel frame, and we wanted to re-model the ring of eight by selling the existing tenor and 5th bell to the Whitechapel Foundry for re-use and having a new treble and 5th bell cast to give a ring of eight with a tenor of approximately 9 cwt. The re-modelled ring includes the 1633 Pennington bell, the last of the three bells which were in the tower before Troyte augmented them to six in 1866.
