6, tenor 12-0-0 in F#

Monday 19:30

Deemed unringable for the last three decades or so, this complete ring of six by Thomas Mears junior is now back in ringing order thanks primarily to the efforts of Peter Trent and the enthusiasm of Rev Stephen Thorp and his churchwardens.

The church is mainly 15c, the tower being rebuilt in 1865, and like its big sister at Swaffham is crowned with a distinctive cupola (although minus the spirelet). The bells, cast in 1833 from an older ring of five, were re-hung with new (plain) bearings and fittings in the 1930’s by Bowells of Ipswich whilst retaining the original frame.

Look out for the fine medieval carved roof with its many varied figures. (Roger Peckham)
