Rung to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the first peal rung in this tower, on 4th December 1722. It was rung by a local band, and was also the first in Gloucestershire and the West Country.
This band of local ringers from the Stroud Branch had prepared to ring a peal today in celebration. It had to be postponed due to a recent farming injury sustained by John Gibson, who was to have conducted it; it will be rung when he has recovered and can rejoin us. With thanks, again, to Tony for ringing as substitute for John.
