Conservation by re-use: we help to relocate redundant and second-hand church bells.

The art and science of ringing bells in a seemingly endless variety of sequences with a distinct and regular beat has developed over several centuries in the United Kingdom, and is recognised as being distinctly British. The sound of this type of ringing is an established and valued part of our national heritage. The continuation and further development of this unique tradition depends entirely on the use of bells in Church towers. Through ringing of its bells the Church can become a focus of pride for the whole community. For centuries Churches have augmented their peal of bells or installed a peal of bells. Most bells are newly cast, but an increasing number are "recycled” from other churches. The Trust helps Churches acquire surplus or redundant bells which will be hung for English-style bell-ringing. When funds permit we donate bells to churches.
