Especially arranged and rung to celebrate the centenary of the rehanging of the octave on their current fittings and recasting of 1,2,7 (with frame adaptations for 1,2) by Alfred Bowell of Ipswich.
First peal in the method on the bells, despite having been an octave since 1782. Also believed to be the fastest peal on the bells.
Also remembering Frank Lewis (whose funeral took place yesterday) and his great life, work and witness, and stalwart service to ringing.
£4.00
