Van Wyksdorp Bell

This is the Church bell in the village of Van Wyksdorp -- which still gets rung every week. I say "still" because it appears to me to be very rickety. One day churchgoers will hear a strange thud, and wonder why their bell has fallen silent. OBSERVATION: A hefty bell-ringer pulls on this bell with all his weight to make it ring. It is a sight worth seeing. It looks, incidentally, as though the left hand side of the bell is propped up with a cold drink bottle.
