Ixworth Restoration
May 2008

Picture of Ixworth tenor being loweredA gorgeous week of summer weather helped the team at Ixworth dismantle and lower their six bells out of the tower under the careful supervision of Chris Nunn and Alan Moult. Teamwork was paramount and each bell was carefully lowered and eventually lifted on to a trailer, ready to be transported to White’s works at Abingdon this week, courtesy of churchwarden, local farmer and bell ringer David Reeve. Quite a feat of ingenuity and a credit to all involved that everything went without a hitch. It’s over to White’s now until the autumn when all six refurbished bells will be back with two new trebles, recently cast at Whitechapel.
