Background: The eight steel bells were rehung with part new fittings, and with extraordinary devotion, by volunteer labour 18 years ago.

Bearings: They were a light shafting type, the sort Richard will be familiar with as fitted to the bells at St Alphege, Whitstable, but larger of course.

What happened: A gudgeon or a bearing housing broke, with like effect on its opposite number and the bell fell into its pit.

Guidance from above, perhaps. But they have a strong band and competent leadership with plans for the future.

  Please could we have a little more background to this mishap?   

  It’s a job to see what type of bearings they were.   What happened to cause the accident?

  I think that this falls into the "Oops" category!


  The bell is undamaged, the wheel and gudgeons destroyed. Whether or 
  not you think that this is the wrong way round it entirely up to you!
