The Bell

Here’s a very nice article by Alan Pollock, of the Cape Cod Chronicle – Historic Church Bell Coming Down To Earth.

The bell, which has a fascinating history of its own, will soon be lowered by crane from the church belfry to a new permanent home at ground level, possibly as part of a display on the church lawn. Removing the bell will allow crews to replace the leaky belfry floor; during storms, water rains down on inside the lower levels of the bell tower and is caught in buckets before it can reach the parishioners below.
