Saint Mary’s church, Brighstone, now has a peal of eight bells instead of six.
The new bells arrived on a lorry on April 4th 2017 and were installed quickly and with only a few minor problems as there were a few rusted bolts on the wheels which had to be cut out and replaced.
Colour photos of the installation of the new bells can be seen on this website by clicking Gallery.

Thanks to Paul Bradley for photographing the hanging process and congratulations to the bell ringers who will surely have mmore scope and much joy from the increased peal.
