Oldest church bells
St Lawrence Church
United Kingdom (Ipswich, Suffolk)
Located in St Lawrence Church in Ipswich, Suffolk, UK, the oldest church bells were cast in the 1440's. The bells stoped being used in 1985 when it was declared the tower they were housed in was no longer stable. In 2009, they were moved further down the tower on to a new cast iron frame where they were once again brought into use. The re-houseing and restoration of the bells was part of a £100,000 ($165,402) by the Ipswich Historic Churches Trust
