All Saints Fulham bells restored

The bells of All Saints Fulham have been restored and Bishop of London Richard Chartres visited the church for the blessing.

There is a peal of ten bells. Six were recast in 1729 from bells hung in 1549 and heard by Elizabeth I when travelling on the river.

The bells would have been known to most of Bishop Chartres’ ┬ápredecessors who lived next door at Fulham Palace.

The Eight Bells pub in Fulham High Street dates from the 17th century when All Saints had eight bells.

There is a report on the parish website.
