Holy Trinity, Meldreth - Bells Appeal

Friday 10th April 2015

The bells are lined up, then loaded onto a lorry, to be taken to Whitechapel Foundry. A small crowd, including John Gipson, who did the last major work on the bells n 1968, watched the loading. Then the remaining parts of the bell frame had to be taken out; it was a long day!
