The 700th peal on the bells.
For evensong and as a belated contribution to Len Mitchell's 60th birthday celebrations.
The Kathleen and May is the last remaining British built wooden hull three-masted top sail schooner. Built in 1900 and registered in Bideford, she has strong associations with Len's family dating back to the time that his great-grandfather served aboard as First Mate and named his daughter (Len's grandmother) Kathleen May.
