Visit To Whites of Appleton 17th March 2018

On Saturday 17th March 2018, a group of ringers and friends from Colebrooke travelled to Appleton by kind invitation of Whites of Appleton Bellhangers to see the finished work on the bells of Colebrooke. The bells now have new headstocks, bearings, clappers, wheels, stays, sliders & pulley wheels and will be transported back to Colebrooke on 23rd March 2018.

The mini ring of 17 bells at the workshop were also on show for our group to experience, with the tenor weighing in at just over one hundredweight. Everyone expressed their thanks to Whites Bellhangers for a very enjoyable day. The day finished with a meal at the Plough Inn, Appleton. Safely back before the snow came!
