The relocation of the Peace Bell

With the unfortunate closure of St. Paul’s bookstore on Fossgate, the previous landlord for one of York’s three Peace Bells, a new home was needed for their prized historical bell that was displayed proudly in the shop window for the past 5 years.

Thankfully, with the help of YCT’s Nick Beilby, who was responsible for the relocation of another of York’s Peace Bells back in June 2018, the bell has been successfully relocated to its new home at the Church of St. Lawrence. A special thank you is once again in order for contractor Barker and Patterson, who have provided the lifting power and transportation means necessary to ensure the Peace Bell reached it’s new home safely.
