August 2012 - February 2013

By kind permission of the church authorities at St. Peter’s, Oundle, the first peal for 19 years was rung on Christmas Eve, prior to a Nativity Service.

Those who have rung at Oundle will know that the bells are quite loud outside so we were very grateful to be allowed to attempt the peal.  The bells are quite tricky to ring, but after a false start of just over a minute which ended when the tenor chiming hammer smashed the treble stay when it struck mid-day, a good peal was rung.
