Burton Dassett, Warwickshire, All Saints' Parish Church.


This tower houses an ancient 13 cwt ring of six that were cast in 1686 by Matthew I & Henry II Bagley. The bells were last rehung in a new steel bell frame by Henry Bond of Burford in 1902, when the canons of all six bells were also removed. In more recent decades the two largest bells were rehung on new fittings by another contractor.

The parish has now placed an order for all new fittings to be manufactured and fitted to the front four bells, and for the cleaning and painting of the bell frame.


* These bells have been removed and are at Loughborough.

*The painting of the bell frame is underway.

*The cast iron headstocks have been founded and fitted with gudgeons.

*The bells have been conserved.

*The new bell wheels are being constructed.
