Refurbishing the belfry

Belfry WarrockThe belfry is one of the more decorative buildings at Warrock, and while the bell is still operational, the building encasing it was in danger of falling down!

In the freezing and soggy Western Victorian Winter, we have had several volunteers working hard to restore this building.

Work undertaken so far includes fixing the timber structure with newly milled timber from fallen tree limbs on site, rebuilding the steps and fresh paint.

The belfry sits adjacent to the dining hall and was used to ring in the workers and residents of Warrock for meals, to start and finish the work day and for other communal gatherings.

See some images below of the work currently being undertaken at the belfry.
