Pub Lunch & Bell Ringing

Pub Lunch & Bell Ringing

We first went to the Bell Pub opposite St. Mary’s Church in Molesey for lunch and we all agreed that the food was great as was the service. 3 courses for £8.00 is so unbelievable!

After lunch we crossed the road and went into the church where Jane gave us an interesting talk about Campanology (yes, bell ringing). There are 8 bells in St. Mary’s bell tower which, of course, you can’t actually see. So Jane had a wooden model showing how the bells hung and how they moved when rung. There were six ringers and they rung several different peels so we could hear the different sounds they make. It is fascinating to learn about something we hear often and don’t really understand what is involved.

We then left for home and everyone agreed it had been a great trip.
