*Links:

The church Website with a long series of photos, which eventually include two exterior views and an overhead view.  In the Photo Gallery is a tour of the building, with more exterior photos.  The History page (under About St.Jude's) reports the completion of the bell tower as well of the long service of one bell ringer, but says nothing about the bells themselves.

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