From the Ringing Chamber

Bell Ringers’ Achievements

Sometimes you will hear the bells ring continuously for 50 minutes or so before a service or after a wedding. This is because we are ringing a quarter peal. We try and do this to celebrate special occasions.

One of the difficulties is that we need to ring the correct changes throughout the time
— if we go really wrong we are not allowed to call it a quarter peal.

The three most recent quarter peals we have rung were for the local ringing
association quarter peal weekend and to welcome Matthew as our new vicar..
