Redundant Bells

As many of you will know in Lincolnshire we have had many churches made
redundant since the war and in many cases the bells were left and have
Unfortunately the DAC advisers have only been interested in ringing bells
and a number of listed bells have been lost.

In more recent years I have been able to find new homes for every bell which
has become available. In part I have done this by persuading towers with
ringing peals to install a bell for use by the priest or as a Sanctus bell.
I try to make sure that a listed bell is used wherever possible. I think
much depends on the attitude of the Bells Adviser to the Redundant Churches
Uses Committee.
