CHURCHCARE – GRANTS FOR THE CONSERVATION OF BELLS AND BELL FRAMES

110

Aims/priorities: Grant applications will be considered for all bells and bell frames identified by the Church Buildings Council as being of historic significance, all bells cast before 1700 and historic bell frames. Bells and bell frames of a later date can be considered where there is a strong reason based on historic interest.

Projects must include conservation treatment of the bells themselves (e.g. removal of cast in crown-staples, turning, welding cracked bells) or conservation of a historic bell frame.

Other grants are also available for funding for the commissioning of conservation reports and the conservation of:

  • books and manuscripts
  • church plate
  • churchyard Structures
  • decorative metalwork
  • monuments
  • organs and organ cases
  • paintings and wall paintings
  • stained glass and historical plain glazing
  • textiles
  • timberwork
