*Links:

For the Quebec City Guild of Change Ringers, a Weblog (blog) has replaced the former Website.  Although the two photo albums are fascinating, there is no longer any information about either of the towers in this city or about how to contact the ringers.

On an information page with descriptions of building, bells and organs (English in bottom half of page), click on the picture of the organ to see pictures of the church exterior and interior.

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