All Saints' Bells

 

 All Saints’ bells consist of a ring of six and were installed in 1904, replacing what by all accounts was a tuneless ring of four bells. They were cast by Mears and Stainbank (Whitechapel).  In 2003 the bells were rehung and retuned (again by the Whitechapel Foundry) and now sound much more melodious.  The tenor bell weighs 8cwt. 0qr. 19lb.

We have an enthusiastic band of ringers.  The bells are rung for all Sunday services, for weddings and other special occasions.  There is a regular practice night on Tuesday evenings which attracts ringers from other towers in the area.  The ringers are members of the Ely Diocesan Association of Church Bell Ringers.  

 

Some of the All Saints’ bellringers photographed after one of the band, James Hayden (17 years), rang his first full peal of 5040 changes in 2 hours 34 minutes.
