On Saturday 17th August 2019, members of the St Milburga tower went on a tour of Herefordshire, visiting the following towers for up to an hour of ringing at each:
Each session was run by a different person, ensuring that a good variety of methods were rung. Over the course of the day, we covered the following:
Rounds and Call Changes
Plain Bob Doubles
Reverse Canterbury Doubles
Plain Bob Minor
Single Oxford Bob Minor
Cambridge Surprise Minor
Plain Bob Triples
Single Oxford Bob Triples
Plain Bob Major
All participants felt that they had been spoiled by the quality of the bells at the towers that we used and we look forward to having our own new set of evenly matched bells very soon!
A fine lunch was had at the Cattle Shed in Kington and the day was rounded off with dinner at The Temeside Inn.
Thanks go to Henry Lewis for setting up the day and to all of the tower captains for making us feel so welcome.
