We hear on the grapevine that there are people in the town who sorely miss the sound of St Mary’s bells.
Someone was even seen to suggest that a donation to the church might entice the bellringers back to the tower!
Well, there’s nothing the bellringers would love more dearly but obviously it is currently out of the question.
However, we do have a recording of the bells and are happy to share it here as a downloadable file. It was recorded in the ringing chamber of the tower and you’ll also hear the tower captain’s instructions to change the pattern.
And have you noticed: there’s a Paypal donate button in the footer of every page of the website (except this posts page) so please use it if you’re so inclined, in return for having been tintinnabulatory provided for. 🙂
The bells are brilliant.. It’s soooo good to hear them.. I live middle Wivenhoe and used to open the front door where I could just hear them.. Miss them more than I realised..
