The bells of this Cathedral Church of St. Nicholas 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 a bellringer from Christ Church at North Shields was killed. We rang to celebrate his life and the ultimate sacrifice that he made.
