ex-Burnley Bells to ring out in Wahroonga

The Australian cast bells previously at Burnley have been aquired by St John's Uniting Church, Wahroonga. The bells have been retuned and will be hung in a new frame but with many of their original fittings. It is hoped that work on hanging the bells will be started this year.

St John's was designed by John Shedden Adam. He was also the architect for St James', Turramurra. The ring of 6 bells (approx. 5 cwt) will be a good addition to the tower at Wahroonga.
