More news of St. George’s churches that rang

Reports coming in of more churches dedicated to St George are coming in.  We have Mossley in Lancashire overlooking the edge of  the Peak District. Its 8 bells have been rung since 1888.

Then across the other side of the country is Methwold in Norfolk.  Here St. George’s church is  Grade I listed due to the architectural alignment of its tower, turret, and spire.  For fifty years the bells were silent and then, after tremendous effort by the local villagers funds were raised so that by the millennium its original 6 bells were joined by 2 more and reinstated so that on April 23rd they rang out merrily for England’ s Patron Saint.

In Damerham in Hampshire, site of Neolithic remains, near the border with Dorset is the Norman church of St. George.  Its 6 bells rang loud and clear for its namesake.
