News of your bells
On 15th June 1215 the first laws guaranteeing our freedoms came into being. Magna Carta was sealed by King John.
Bellringers across England were encouraged to celebrate the anniversary and our bells were rung on the Sunday afternoon. We made joyful music but there need to be more ringers to perform true English Change ringing at All Saints’.
You don’t have to wait until 2115, come and find out the thrill of good ringing now.
Ring 01793 784 393 or come up the tower on a Sunday morning.
All Saints has a fine peal of eight bells. Tenor 17.1.7 in E
They were cast by Taylors of Loughborough in 1926
