Here is a link to see early preparations;

and here is a posting from Dickon Love

“I am the Capt of the band who will be ringing. We tried the bells on dry land last week and there is no perceptable tower movement. Today we try them on the Thames and will later be attempting a peal. Details of the bells and story may be found at http://royaljubileebells.lovesguide.com. I do have a number of small updates to make to the site but have been a bit busy this past fortnight with wedding matters”

And a short video of them in action on the River Thames

There is some concern to get the barge low enough in the water to get under the bridges

Cheers Eddie Martin
