Restoring England’s Heritage

About a year ago, the BBC visited St James’ church, Ab Kettleby to film a section for ‘Restoring England’s Heritage’. The programme was first shown on BBC ONE in December 2013 and also takes a look at Taylor’s Bell Foundry in Loughborough (where two of our three donated bells will be cast in due course.)St James, Ab Kettleby

If you missed in last time around, a repeat is being shown on BBC TWO on 11th October at 18:00.

Learn to RingSunday 7th September sees a significant milestone being reached for the bell ringers of St James’ church. For the first time in living memory, the church bells will be rung full-circle prior to the Sunday services at St James’, Ab Kettleby.
