Our work deliberately has a strong educational slant and we consider that authenticity is of the highest importance. We prefer to work from found material where possible and are extremely cautious regarding the interpretation of styles depicted in manuscript sources. The Society has a very large quantity of what might loosely be referred to as "props".

 

Constructed to the highest standards - and from the correct materials - they include large-scale tents, cooking equipment, pole lathes, wall and braid looms, coin-striking equipment, smithying and a wide range of other museum-quality artifacts too numerous to mention.

Section from a short history of the bells:

'The corner stone of Mirfield Parish Church tower was laid by Capt. Ingham on October 19th 1867.'

'Much of the history of the work done on St Mary’s bells was compiled by two tower captains,  first by A. Robinson between 1908 and 1983 and later S. Wooller in the 1980’s.'

From Taylor's Bell Foundry report of 1983:

‘The bells were cast at a period during which much development was taking place with regard to the profiles of bells in relation to their diameters and their corresponding weights and the notes which they sound.'
