St Peter's Tower Project, Stoke Fleming

Charity description

St Peter's Tower Project, Stoke Fleming logo
Thank you for visiting our fundraising page on MyDonate. We are raising funds for the renovation of the bell tower, bellframe and church clock of St Peter's Church, Stoke Fleming, Devon

The tower was built in the thirteenth century and is 83 feet high; the bells, which sit at the top of the tower, date from around 1777 and have not had any major work carried out on them since they were rehung in 1928. They hang in a frame made up of steel girders, the main ones being ten inches deep. At that time metal bellframes were not galvanised as is usual today. During the intervening years, the ends of the girders have slowly corroded where they are buried in the brickwork incorporating them into the tower walls and it has become evident that the bell frame needs to be replaced.
