The Coleridge Campanile Home Page

A ring of 8 small bells, the tenor weighing 10lbs in the key of G.

The bells were cast in July 1997 by Matthew Higby and Richard Bowditch and originally installed by Matthew Higby and Tom Chapman on 14 July 1997 in the home of Anne Carpenter, Crowthorne, Berkshire, UK.

The Campanile is named in memory of Canon G F Coleridge 1857 - 1949 President of the Central Council 1921 - 1930, Master of the Oxford Diocesan Guild 1933 - 1946, Chairman of the Sonning Deanery Branch 1923 - 1947) and Vicar of Crowthorne, Berkshire 1904 - 1949

The bells were the generous gift of Anne Carpenter to Peter Bevis and Helen McGregor and were installed by Matthew Higby on Thursday 16th December 1999 in Waccabuc, New York, USA.

In December 2000 we were pleased to be able to return these bells to Anne who once again had a suitable home for them. During their brief sojourn to the USA they provided a welcome resource and much interest.
