The very brief Dutch Wikipedia article about the town mentions the Reformed Church and has a photo of it.  But it places the town in the province of Utrecht rather than Zuid Holland.  Since 2019, Hagestein has been part of gemeente Vijfheerenlanden.  The corresponging English Wikipedia article makes clear that Hagestein was an independent town in Zuid Holland until merging with Vianen, Utrecht, in 1986.

Tower photo

The Wikimedia category for the building includes not only several photos of the tower but also two photos of the historic church/hour bell.

The Dutch Reliwiki page about the church mentions the ancient church & hour bell (Eikenhouten klokkenstoel met klok van S. Butendiic, 1444, diam. 107 cm. Mechanisch torenuurwerk, circa 1910) but not these newer bells.  There are several photos of the building, both historic and recent.

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