Progress of a different kind this month. After a long absence, certainly over twenty years Over Whitacre finally has two bells both with stays. With the daylight now here and once again with thanks to Fillongley ringers who donated the missing toggle and stay the treble bells is once again complete. Once we had made a pattern we have reused the top section of the recently broken Nether Whitacre tenor stay (heaviest bell so much longer than the little bell it is destined for at Over Whitacre). This stay is small enough to be made from the top uncracked section of this stay. Surely a good example of reuse in action!
Whilst up in the tower an opportunity was made to record the bells and to take some photographs. This has been added to a new section on Over Whitacre bells which can now be viewed on this website which now has home pages for Lea Marston, Over Whitacre and of course mainly Nether Whitacre.
Now that the warmer weather is here and you feel like a new challenge do come up and see us on a Thursday night even if you just want to see what happens.
