Newspaper article from The Bolton News dated 13th December 2012 shows that the bells at Tyldesley have been unringable for many years. There is a move by Bolton Branch to bring the bells back into regular use. This is being led by Stuart Bailey from St Mary's, Leigh. Updates will be posted here when available. In the meantime, read the article.
