Holy Trinity, Meldreth - Bells Appeal

Thursday 9th April 2015

The remaining bells were lowered to the base of the tower, then the rest of the day was spent preparing the frame for dismantling; undoing lots of bolts (requiring varying degrees of brute force and intelligence), as well as tie rods down into the clock chamber and the remaining fittings.
