Does anyone know the fate of the bells of Christ Church, Oldbury West 
Midlands (10.5 cwt)? The church is still in use (as a church), but the

again (at least in that tower).

It is one of the rings that is claimed by both the Worcestershire 
Association (It is the only unringable tower in the Northern Branch of 
that Association) and the St Martin's Guild.

I heard a rumour that the St Martin's Guild had looked into recovering
