After Storms Dudley, Eunice and Franklin, it might be a good idea to check the Bells to ensure that the weatherproofing is working properly. Persistent damp (rain) in the Belfry will cause rot in the woodwork, and corrosion in the metalwork; both are expensive to correct if the root cause is not addressed.
On February 12, 2022 the Ashwell Bells were rung again – see Bell Board for details. This was the first ringing recorded since 1976!
Note however, that the bells are still under repair, and not available for general ringing. The Tower Correspondent will be able to provide further information as renovations progress.
