Bells are OK,  but much smoke and water damage to church.

  Does anyone have details of the fire damage at Sheering, Essex 
  reported briefly with a picture in this week's Church Times (p.4).

  The Church's website has nothing about it yet, but says this about the bells:

  "There are four bells in the bell tower. The first and third are by 
  Miles Graye 1619; the second is probably by William Wightman dated 
  1682 and the fourth probably by Richard Keene 1702. The bells were 
  not heard for about thirty years as the tower was considered unsafe 
  for change ringing, but in 1998 they were repaired and re-hung by the 
  Whitechapel Bell Foundry with a chiming mechanism, as part of our 
  year 2000 preparations."
