District practice at Southwark

31st August 2005

Southwark Cathedral   Southwark Ringing Room

 

Nearly 30 ringers ventured out of Kent for the district's annual trip to London. The standard of ringing was generally good on what are not easy bells. There were plenty of people ringing here for the first time but everyone rang at least rounds on 12. Grandsire Caters, Little Bob Royal and the new front eight were also rung. There was the chance to go up on the roof and enjoy the views over London as the sun set.

 

Going over to The Maket Porter for a drink or two afterwards rounded off the evening nicely.

Tenor bottom left, 11th bottom right.

The H is the device to turn the clappers over as the two back bells can only be rung up wrong.

The new sharp 2nd is under the grill (middle left).

Slightly different from the 3cwt tenor at Foots Cray that Clare normally rings!
