First peal on the restored and augmented bells.
Rung to the memory of Samuel Scattergood, rector at Blockley from 1681 to 1696. He was one of the leading lights of 17th century ringing and contributed several new methods to the first known book on ringing, Fabian Stedman’s Campanalogia, published in 1677. The 5th of the present ring was cast during his incumbency. Samuel joined the College Youths in 1672 and was master in 1685. He died in 1696 and was buried on 10th December under the chancel in this church. The band consists of 5 ringers who helped with the restoration and augmentation project plus five past and present master of the Society.
