Scarning

SS Peter and Paul

GF

6, tenor 14-2-18 in E

Wednesday 18h30

Sonorous would be a good description of these beefy slow-turning ‘old style’ bells. They are rather loud outside but pleasant to listen to nonetheless. There were three bells recorded here in 1552 which provided the metal for a new ring of five in 1697 cast by Charles Newman, an itinerant founder. Gillett & Johnston restored the bells in 1931, at the same time adding a new treble but retaining the old bell frame.

The sturdy tower is 16c and has stepped parapets with the four evangelists in residence, one at each corner.  (Roger Peckham).

    I had the pleasure of ringing at Scarning on Wed 27 Feb 2013 I was made most welcome by the ringers there and my thanks to Frank (tower Captain) and the band for allowing me to join them. Regards Denys
