Grappenhall’s complete mix of bells have now been replaced with a brand new 10, all cast in early 2019.  They have been blessed, dedicated and now pealed (5040 Yorkshire Surprise Royal in 3h 3m on 13th October 2019), so are now ringing regularly for practices and Sunday morning services.  The four bells cast by Henry II Bagley have been hung “dead” above the new ring.

There are a lot of outstanding tasks to do before the project is completed though, including reinstallation of the clock and installing “creature comforts.”

The tower has a Facebook page with frequent updates.
