Quarter Peal at High Offley

The main purpose of our practices on a Tuesday evening is so that we get to a good standard to ring for Sunday Service.  However bell ringing can become much more than that, and ringers often integrate with other towers and ringing within the local area.

I often say that bell ringing takes you to some lovely remote villages and on Sunday 23rd July I was lucky enough to be ask to go a ring a quarter peal at High Offley.  There are 5 bells there and so there is a maximum capability to ring 120 changes on them.  To ring a quarter peal the bell ringers need to ring 10 and half extents (10.5 x 120 = 1260) 1260 is the minimum length for a quarter.

The bell ringers were:
1Warren Griffiths
2Christopher Adams
3Rosemary E Wright
4Duncan Davis
5Trevor Lock (C)

Haughton Bell Ringers practice every Tuesday evening 8pm until 9pm (except for the 2nd Tuesday in the month, when the practice is moved to the Thursday of the same week) We welcome new ringers, and anyone who would like to visit us.
