‘Mary’ The Magdalene Bell Ascends ~ December 2016

After arriving in Taunton on the 9th December 2016, The Magdalene Bell called ‘Mary’ was hoisted up into the tower today. Even at 13cwt and 24lbs, block and tackle made light work of raising it. Clergy and bellworkers were in attendance, as was also the case when its predecessor was rehung in December 1955.
