Bells galore

Today is something rather different.  We’ve unashamedly ‘borrowed’ a photo from St Michael’s Church’s Facebook posting.  The picture was extracted from a video about the installation of a new set of bells; a sufficiently historic event to justify a little plagiarism.

As recompense, if you’re a Facebook user just click on the photo and you should – with luck, as we’re second-guessing Facebook here – see a video by St Michael’s showing the bell being lifted into position.  There are lots of other photos on St Michael’s Facebook ‘Place’ (Stmichaelscamberley) too.

Pleasingly, the name of the bell’s donor, and other personal information, is cast on the outside of the bell.  You’ll have to peer closely to read it, though.

Yes, we did wander around the church ourselves while the work was in progress.  But we made sure that we didn’t get in the way, so we only photographed the bellfounders van.  Not wildly exciting for most people!
