Plan to restore Harwich church bells hits setback
10:00am Friday 4th January 2013 in News
A RENOVATION project for 200-year-old church bells has hit a setback.
The project to restore four church bells in St Nicholas Church, Harwich, was supposed to be completed last month after months of repair work.
But during the re-installation process engineers experienced a technical hitch delaying the completion of the project.
Peter Mann, rector at St Nicholas Church, said: “We were expecting to have them in for the New Year and it will be a month or so late now because parts need adjusting.
“As you can imagine we are disappointed by this."
