Update on the bell for St. Michaels Abbey

The new bell has now been finished and has been mounted in a temporary frame in the crypt at the Abbey pending repairs to the bell tower. Here are two links to videos on u-tube. The first shows the casting process used to produce the bell. The second shows the bell in its new (temporary) home and the sound it now makes.

Here are links to pictures of the finished bell. The first shows the Farnborough Society Logo on one side in recognition of our contribution to the project.
