At last they're Back - Stafford Bells Ring Out

It been a lot of hard work and it has seemed like for ever, but Stafford Bells have now been installed and we had the first ring on them this evening.  The 'Try Out' was well attended with ringers coming from afar who has helped along the way.  The first ring was on the old Hanley 10 which hadn't been rung since the 1980's

The next ring was on the ring of twelve.  This is the first ring on twelve bells ever at Stafford.

The third ring was on the light 8.  

It has been a long old road getting here, with many setbacks and a lot of hard work by many people, however full credit has to be given to Nigel Horritt who never gave up as had so much patience in getting the project completed.  The bell ring and handle lovely well and they are going to be a great  asset to the County Town.


Haughton Bell Ringers practice every Tuesday evening from 8pm until 9pm. We welcome new ringers, and anyone who would like to visit us to find out more. Please feel free to share this post by text, email or social media
