The church Website has a photo of the building on the home page; the door to the ringing room is visible above the parapet of the arcade roof.  (That roof is reached by a steel spiral stair in the front corner of the arcade.)  There is a paragraph about the ringers on the Music Ministries page, and the installation of the bells is mentioned on the History page.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Taylor bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
