First Twelve Bell Ringing at Guildford Cathedral in 16 months

The full ring of 12 bells at the Cathedral have not been heard since 15 March 2020 – by far the longest period in their history. This was duly remedied on Friday 23 July 2021 when the Cathedral ringers and supporters gathered to ring an excellent quarter peal of Grandsire Cinques in 56 minutes.

As Chris Rogers (Tower Captain) said afterwards ‘It was a joy to hear and ring all 12 bells again’.
