Test ring on 1st May, 2024

Ist May 2024

Following the completion of John Taylors’ work, a test ring took place on the afternoon of 1st May. Eighteen experienced bell ringers came to Westhorpe as well as other visitors. It was a thrill to hear the bells being rung for the first time. The picture below shows Nathan and Paul, bell hangers and Clive Mees.

Part of our project is to spotlight the history of the church and the village. To this end, we have established an audio tour within the church featuring six people from across the centuries. Each character appears on an information board which also contains a QR code which allows the viewer to listen to their story. We were delighted that local friends were able to make these recordings with the help of the Department of Music at the West Suffolk College.
