  Rehanging the bells (October 2004)

Rehanging the bells is almost exactly the reverse of the process of removing them. The two notable differences were that in October the ground underneath the church path was softer than in June, which made pushing the bells harder, and everything was much cleaner, with not rusted bolts to worry about.
