Rev. Ellacombe’s Chiming Apparatus
They allowed tunes to be played on the tower bells and churches could dispense with Bellringers where they did not see eye to eye with them.
Many have been removed from belfries, but ours have been restored and can still be used. They do however need a lot of maintenance to both the ropes and the large number of moving parts. The bells must be in the down position during use.
