South Creake bells to ring again with Heritage Lottery Fund support
Thanks to a grant of £16,100 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) the bells of St Mary’s Church, South Creake, will be ringing out over the village once more by the end of the year. The bells have been silent for many years to protect them from damage, but now the Parochial Church Council (PCC) can carry out the essential restoration work to set them ringing again. At the heart of the project is the installation of an Ellacombe Chiming Apparatus. This is an ingenious device which enables one person to ring all five bells at ground level in the church tower.
