Churches & Bells of Worcester


St John-the-Baptist-in-Bedwardine, Worcester

8 Bells, Tenor 15-1-16 in F

St John's Church  (12th Century, and later) is situated west of the river and has given its name to the whole of that part of the conurbation, which is simply known as "St John's". The eight bells were previously a ring of six cast by Mears in 1816 and hung in a wooden eight-bell frame. Augmentation to eight, by Taylor's, came in 1929.


For four years, from 2007 to 2011, the bells were out of action due to death watch beetle in the tower. After remedial work to deal with this the bells were rehung with new bearings, pulleys, etc, by Arthur Berry.
