Day One!

This was the first day of the work to rehang the bells. A team of volunteers and the builder appointed by the bell hangers started work in the morning to clear the tower of various rubbish that had accumulated over the years, remove the linkage from the clock to the bells and remove the old defunct winding gear from the clock. There was also work to be done on the bells, with most of the pulleys and bell fittings removed and also the wheels  separated from the bells.
