I can add to this:
Warners 11877 Catalogue states Saltaire a ring of 3. So Blews recast/scrap=
ped one.
Geoff Armitage (1993)
George told me they were scrapped in 1957, to a scrap merchant for =A310 !

It is in the 8th edition as SHIPLEY, W YORKS, SALTAIRE CONGREG'L CH.

I think CJP may have more definitive information, but here is a little: T=
aylor's inspected in 1922. At that time the bells were still ringable but =
there was frame movement and the bells were "difficult". New fittings and =
at least strengthened frame were advised. Apparently nothing was done, an=
d when enquiries were made in 1943 the bells had been sold - where I don't =

For the record the inspection notes give the following:

Treble 2' 0" 3cwt 1870 William Blews=20
Second 2' 2" 3.1/2-cwt 1870 William Blews
Third 2' 3.1/2" 4-cwt 1870 William Blews
Fourth 2' 4.1/2" 4.1/2-cwt 1857 John Warner
Fifth 2' 7.1/4" 5.1/2-cwt 1870 William Blews
Tenor 2' 11.1/2" 7.1/2-cwt 1857 John Warner

There is a clock in the tower, details unknown but I hazard a guess that =
the two 1857 bells were provided as clock bells (at the building) and the o=
thers added subsequently.

This marvellous building - part of Sir Titus Salt's model village - is em=
inently visitable, but getting up the tower is another thing, at least so I=
've found!

There has been a suggestion that there use to be a ring of bells at Sal=
taire Congregational Church. This does not appear on our "lost rings" list.=
Can anyone confirm that there was a ring and if so when it was removed?

Many thanks
