Sharing the Heritage of Bradford Cathedral World War One Memorial Bells

The Cathedral has been successful in securing a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund of £79,100.00 for:

  • the repair and restoration of the peal of 12 First World War memorial bells
  • improving accessibility to the bell tower 
  • training volunteer bell ringers
  • recruiting more volunteers as guides and welcomers
  • producing information boards and an exhibition on the history of the bells
  • producing booklets on the heritage of the bells and the stories behind the names on the bells. 

The project will start later this month and will run until March 2019.

This is great news for the Cathedral and we are very grateful to the HLF for their generous award.
