The bells

Recording the peal celebrating the rehanging of the bells

Kington Magna possesses a fine ring of 5 bells, with the tenor weighing 14¾ cwt, which were restored in 2010 after much effort by the villagers and others over a number of years.

A CD is available, price £5, of the bell restoration, in aid of the tower funds. (available from Tim)

Recording a peal in memory of the Rev. Frank Llewellyn Edwards

One time Vicar of Kington Magna, the Revd. Llewellyn Edwards, Vicar for 48 years, was also a keen bell ringer and Hon. secretary and treasurer of the Salisbury Diocesan Guild of Ringers for 37 years. When he died left a bequest to the Guild which was the start of the Guild’s bell restoration fund, which is named after him. Due to the connection, Kington Magna received a particularly generous grant from the Guild towards the restoration.
