New Treble Wheel

The Treble bell in the tower has a new wheel. The old one was loose and heavily patched and would not ring true. Whites of Appleton, with the help of some local ringers have now fitted a new wheel. The treble bell is the smallest in the tower (about 5 cwt) and has the highest note. The new wheel has been tested and runs true, we are now back to having all 6 bells.
