St. Mary's Somerleyton Tower Appeal

The Friends of St.Mary’s has been set up to raise money towards the repair of the bell tower. The Church is a listed Grade 11 building. Although it was substantially reconstructed in 1854 by Sir Morton Peto the bell tower is 15th Century,and three of the present bells were cast in the 15thCentury before the reformation.

There is an active group of bell-ringers, and people visit to ring from all over the British Isles.

The estimated cost of repair is £85.000, some promises of grant and donations have already been made.

If you have heard and enjoyed the sound of bells over Suffolk countryside and would like to make a donation, please contact us by e- mail.
