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’ predecessors 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.
