English-style full-circle bell-ringing.

Bowral, NSW, Uniting Church

During 2013 the Australian TV network “ABC” broadcast a program about the bell installation project at Naremburn, NSW. Interest was aroused at the Uniting Church and a light ring of six bells was installed during 2014.

We located the 5th and tenor bells of the ring of six. The 5th came from the now demolished hospital chapel at Devizes, Wiltshire, UK and the tenor is an ex-Trinity House buoy bell. The 3rd & 4th were formerly part of the Canberra carillon and the two trebles are new bells. The ring was dedicated on 27th September 2015.
