The 1904 augmentation to 8 bells

The two bells that made up the full octave were both donated to the church. The Treble bell was donated by the public of Richmond through a large number of donations and the second bell by the Marquess of Zetland.

Both these bells were bought by the Keltek Trust in 2016 and donated by the Trust to St Faith's Church Dorstone, Herefordshire binging their existing set of 4 bells (the oldest cast in 1350) up to a ring of 6 bells.
