Illingworth St Mary had a chime of 8 bells, 10-2-0 in Ab. They were 
removed in 1979. The back four are now the back four of the ring at St 
Martin le Grand, York and the front four the back four at Clifton, York.

Dear colleagues and friends,

The Carillon Society of Britain and Ireland has received the enquiry 
below. We are not familiar with this tower nor it housing a carillon of 
such a number of bells. Does anyone have  any light to shed? I will 
collate any replies for our enquirer and reply directly.

All my best,


  Back around 1965 I was head choir boy at the church and was asked to 
ring the bells for a couple of weddings.

  I'm struggling now to find any articles or news about the church or 
its 24 bell carillon. I understand that hte [sic] church was broken into 
and organ pipes stolen, but that's  as much as I know.

  Are you able to provide any links or other info that might help 


  Steven Bond

  formally of Cousin Lane, Illingworth.
