Bell ringing in Tunstead

A group of peripatetic bell ringers visited St Mary’s Church, Tunstead today, 12th July.
I visited the church to capture the event in sight and sound.

Here is a sample of the sights and sounds of the “Engine Room”. The Ringing Master was kind enough to let me into the hallowed realm usually reserved for the bell ringing fraternity.

Here is an audio recording from the engine room. Listen out for the Ringing Master calling the changes.

Aubrey Foster restored and maintains the bells at St Mary’s. It took him and his friends 6 years to complete the task, but it is well worth it.

The bells will be rung again for the wedding on 29th July.

Here is a recording of the bells being rung at the wedding on 29th July 2017.
