St Michael and All Angels church bells sent off for repairs

Church bells which have been in place for more than 350 years have been taken out for repair amid fears some of the bells could have fallen on to ringers.

To get them out the clock at St Michael and All Angels church in Brinkworth had to be removed.

The clock had been in place since 1837. It will now get an electric winding mechanism, after being hand-wound for nearly 180 years.
