Half Muffled. The final act of a week marking the 80th anniversay of a bombing raid which destroyed this church and killed 21 children and three Sunday school teachers, injuring many more on 30th May (Rogation Sunday) 1943. The peal started at 2.40pm which was the exact time that the bomb struck. The church clock was stopped at that time for many years. We also remember Brian Mountjoy the composer of the peal
