Poppleton

BARWICK-IN-ELMET  (All Saints). Three bells.

The old bells had:

1.    Fac tibi Baptista sit ut acceptabilis ista

       (With a head, probably of St. John Baptist.)

                     (Weight, 8 cwt. 1 qr. 26 lbs.)

Possibly this was a similar bell to No. 1 at Kirk Fenton.

2.              VENITE EXVLTEMVS DOMINO 1668

                     (Weight, 11 cwt. 3 qrs. 19 lbs.)

3.    In Iucunbitate soni sonabo tibi Dne et in dulcedine votiv tuo noe 1604  W. O.

                     (Weight, 15 cwt.)

Nos. 1 and 2 were recast in 1844 by Messrs. Mears, and now weigh 8 cwt. 0 qrs. 6 lbs. and 12 cwt. 1 qr. 14 lbs. respectively.
