Members of this list may be interested in two recent publications about the
bells of Evesham – one about the Bell Tower, the other about the associated
“Evesham” bell at Gloucester St.Nicholas. Both are published by the Vale of
Evesham Historical Society, and available via


The titles are:


Evesham Abbey Bell Tower: An architectural and documentary history by George
and Toni Demidowicz (2015) – price £40. I haven’t seen this yet, so I can’t
say how much it says about the bells (rather than the Bell Tower itself) but
I know the authors and can unhesitatingly say that it will have been well
researched. It is also well illustrated


A lost bell of Evesham Abbey? Clement Lichfield, Robert Hendley and the 4th
bell of Gloucester St Nicholas by Stan Brotherton (2015) – price £15.
Definitely an interesting and useful little publication, challenging
conventional thinking and tradition regarding Clement Lichfield (the builder
of the Bell Tower) and the Gloucester bellfounder Robert Hendley
