Bells and Ringing

St Peter’s bell ringers are affiliated to the Peterborough Diocesan Guild of Church Bell Ringers.  New members are always welcome.  You must be at least 10 years old to ring.  Our Tower Captain is Mrs Dorothy Stopps and regular practice night is Monday at 7.45.  



Although the Tower was built in about 1380, the bells are rather more recent.  There were three bells originally, but they were recast and another three added.  The bells were turned and re-hung in 2003 by Taylors of Loughborough, who operate one of only two bell foundries in Britain.
