Corbridge bells must now be considered as unringable.
There is now a permanent wooden platform across the bellframe making five  
of the six bells unringable.
This was installed on the advice of a "safety expert" who was  asked to 
inspect the tower as access to put up the flag was difficult.
There was consultation with the D.A.C. and I put forward a restoration plan 
 but there was very definitely no will to proceed along the route of any 
type of  restoration.
Any application by members of the public and or "bell experts" to look at  
the bells will be met with a refusal.
Unless some one has K100 available and was able to persuade the Church to  
restore the bells they will remain "unringable".
My understanding is that there are probably about twelve ringers left alive 
 that have actually rung these bells to various methods including London  
Howard E. J. Smith - Newcastle Diocesan bell  advisor.
