The tower of All Saints, Sudbury was repaired in 2001/2 and a try-out 
of the bells was arranged in August 2002. Whilst the tower was passed 
as fit for the bells to be rung, there had been severe rain 
penetration over many years which has caused rot to occur in the top 
of the 7th headstock. The Suffolk Guild Technical Advisor has 
inspected the damage and has stated that the bell must not be rung 
until repairs/replacement has taken place. Discussions are in hand at 
the moment with the parish to agree remedial works and funding.
