All Saints

6, tenor 7-2-4 in A

Tuesday 19h30 1st only

The little village of Wighton with its church, farm and cluster of dwellings stands on the bank of the River Stiffkey.

During severe gales in November 1965 the church tower collapsed. It was rebuilt in its exact original form some eleven years later thanks to the generosity of a Canadian engineer and businessman, Leeds Richardson, whose ancestors are buried in the churchyard.

At the time of the collapse there was a single „Brend‟ bell, the sole survivor of a medieval ring of four. This was recast by Whitechapel as the treble for the present ring of six, the back five rescued from the redundant church of St Paul, Maidstone. (Roger Peckham)
