Not me - a little before my time.... It might be worth chatting to Phil Watts - there is probably a record in the W&P reports. Probably Martin Waldron - he did most stuff around there at that time.

A website states:
The bell, a single 7 cwt specimen was cast by Thomas Mears at the Whitechapel Bell Foundry in 1843. Every
indication is that it came from "stock" and was not specially cast for Marchwood. The bell is jointly used as the Church Clock chime, which can be heard ringing out the hour throughout the village.

The Bell frame stood the test of time up until 1992, when local parishioners were called upon to replace the 149 year old rotting timber on the top of the bell frame. At the same time they assisted the professional Bell Hanger to fit a new clapper and to replace the rotted headstock.
Anyone know who did the job??
