Campanologists compete in diocese bell-ringing competition
Bell ringers from Daventry were among those competing in a bell-ringing contest for teams from all over the Peterborough diocese.
The campanology contest took place at St Peter’s Church in Stanion, near Corby, last month.
The four ancient bells at Stanion were overhauled – and two new bells added – in 2008, so the teams found them easy to ring.
Seven teams of six ringers rang in succession so that two expert ringers from the Coventry Diocese could count the faults in the desired rhythm.
One of the two teams from Rothwell were judged to have won with just 10 faults.
