Planned Improvement Work

Work is planned to improve the dynamics of the bells to make them easier to ring accurately, it is anticipated that the work will take place later this year or early 2018.  A schedule of work has been agreed with John Taylors of  Loughborough to fine tune the swing rates of all the clappers and some of the bells , this requires the removal of the clappers to the bell foundry and therefore a period when the bells cannot be rung. The dates will be published here once they have been agreed. The work will cost in the region of £5000.00 and will be paid for by the cathedral bell ringers.

The cathedral has produced a press release regarding the work which can be found here
