10th June 2010

Once all of the bells and framework were in the tower, all of the bolts in the new frame had to be tightened. Along with all the bolts on the new wheels. There are a lot of bolts in a bell frame!

The next stage was to start fitting some of the running gear, sliders and stops etc. which stop the bells from swinging to far.

Friday continued on from Thursday, but by lunch time four of the eight bells had been spun through their working range of movement which was a good end to a weeks work.
