I have been meaning to mention the above church (or rather its bells)
for a while. The church, now in Milton Keynes in the middle of the OU
campus, was made redundant in 1974 and is now used as a concert hall.
The OU website says: 'The western tower, which was added in 1400, is
Perpendicular and contains three bells, rehung in 1638' (sic).
I took a look there the other day, the tower is inaccessible without
ladders, but two of the three bells are stood on the floor at the
east end. The bigger, about 90cm in diameter, is inscribed 'CHANDLER
MADE ME 1709'. The smaller, about 78cm in diameter, is
inscribed 'ANTHONY CHANDLER PRAISE THE LORD 1679'.
The bells presumably belong to the OU. Are they known about / listed
