I am pleased to report that Whites are due to start work at Hanslope on Monday 9 September. The bells will be removed from the tower during that week and then transported to Appleton for the refurbishment to begin. It is estimated that the work will take between three and four months to complete.
Work was originally due to begin in mid July, but Whites had to reschedule the date because there was a backlog of work at the foundry which meant the frame would not have been ready in time for this start date. Will get back in touch when I have some more information for you.
It’s so exciting to think that the project is finally getting underway, there were times when it felt like it was never going to happen.
