Britain’s Church Bell Ringers Don’t Limit Themselves to Sunday Services


There are magazines devoted to bell ringing, there are bell-ringing societies at universities with their own coats of arms, and there’s even a national council. A few seasons ago, the nation went “bonkers,” as the tabloid The Sun put it, over a pair of bell ringers who appeared on “Britain’s Got Talent.”
