Specially arranged and rung at Langton-by-Wragby Church to mark the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta and to celebrate the close connections this tiny Lincolnshire village has with Magna Carta.
Stephen Langton who was Archbishop of Canterbury in 1215 was responsible for drawing up and drafting Magna Carta. He was born at the family ancestral home at the moated Manor house next door to Langton-by-Wragby Church.
Sadly the four bells at Langton-by-Wragby Church are derelict and not in a fit state to be rung, so it was decided to ring a handbell quarter at the Church instead to mark this historic anniversary.
Following the quarter an extent, 24 changes, of Canterbury Place Minimus was rung.
