The bells of this Church of St. Oswin were rung today as part of “Ringing to Remember” - the Durham & Newcastle Association of Church Bellringers First World War Ringing Commemoration.
On this day one hundred years ago Private Appleby, a bellringer from St. Oswin's, died of his wounds sustained in The Battle of The Somme. We rang to celebrate his life and the ultimate sacrifice that he made.
Rung by a local Sunday Service band - the first in living memory.
Joseph Foster Appleby, we have remembered you.
