Elkstone’s Church Bells are Returning on August 5th..

Good news! The bells are returning on Wednesday 5th August, almost exactly a year since they were removed for restoration and repair.

You are invited to come and watch the bells return – a once in a lifetime event. They will be arriving just after 10am and they are being placed in the churchyard for an hour to allow for photos. There will be opportunity to have your individual photo taken with the bell(s) of your choice, in the churchyard.

Due to current Covid restrictions, only the repairing contractors will allowed inside the working area (at ground floor level). However provided social distancing is maintained, photos of the bells being lifted into the tower will be possible.

Once the bells are installed, contractors need to return to the bell tower to make some additional bespoke fittings and will return for a final fit and test ring in a couple of weeks. Watch this space for more details
