[Bell Historians] St Mark's Old Leeds Road, Huddersfield

The following Wikipedia link mentions the bell as cast by Mears and 
Stainbank in, possibly, 1887.  In addition there are pictures of the 
Church.  The article states that "The church was closed for services and 
deconsecrated by the Church of England on 1 November 1997" which 
considering that Greenwood's Wakefield book was published in 1995 it 
seems strange that he didn't include it.

Does anyone have any information about the bell at St Mark's 
Huddersfield (Old Leeds Road)? The Church is now an office building and 
I noticed the bell from the ring road.

It is currently sitting on the floor of the bellcote but looks in very 
good condition. Trying to contact the owners of the building with not 
much luck as it wouldn't surprise me if it ended up disappearing.
