First images of new bells

Our new bells were taken out of the sand last Thursday, and here is an exciting glimpse of them in their raw state. Some artefacts of the casting process remain – in particular the rough edges around the mouth of the bells. There is also some remnants of the bell moulds to be seen, caught between the raised pattern and inscriptions in various places.

The next step for the bells is a fettling process to remove the rough edges before they will be carefully tuned to fit with our existing three bells, and the new/old tenor.
