Will the Church Tower Fall Down?

Structural engineer Adrian Dempster paid a visit to St Mary & St Margaret’s church at the request of the bellringersIMG_1398 to check whether the proposed restoration scheme would be safe to install. The plan is to remove the old and worn wooden frame and replace it with a modern purpose-built metal one. Two more bells would be added. It has to be assessed  whether the new arrangement would cause any problems to the 300-year-old tower at Castle Bromwich. 

So will Castle Bromwich Church Tower Fall Down? We don’t think so!
