Categories Badsey and Aldington
Transcription of article


At a meeting of the Badsey Belfry Committee held on Wednesday, October 15th, it was decided to give the order for two new bells to complete the peal of eight. The work has been entrusted to Messrs. Mears & Stainbank, of London, and the Committee feel convinced that the work will be carried out so as to give general satisfaction. The total cost will be about £96, and of this sum two thirds is already in hand. Mr. J. Sladden and Mr. H. Keen have kindly made themselves responsible to raise the remaining sum. It is expected that the bells will be placed in the tower before Christmas, and one of the bells will be used for the striking of the new clock. Inscriptions in Latin will be placed on the bells, to record the fact that they are erected as a memorial of the reign of Queen Victoria of blessed memory.
