*Links:

The University Website has a photo page about the Chapel.  The chime has its own Website, which is quite extensive and informative.

News article indicates that the fire which did major damage to spire did cause some damage to the wooden bell frame but the bells are intact.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Meneely (Troy) bellfoundry.
