A Happy Band of successful Somerset ringers WESTONZOYLAND

Pictured are the band that rang for St. GEORGE from the tower in WESTONZOYLAND in Somerset.  The church is dedicated to Blessed Virgin Mary and its tower is 100 feet tall standing in the village which was the site of The Battle of Sedgemoor  6th July 1685 – the last battle to have taken place on English soil. The ringers rang 1260 changes, for 43 minutes with 3 methods.

The photo of these wonderful ringers are, from left to right:  John Hallett, Maurice Hurley, Trish Everitt.  Front Row: Brian Wylde (C), Mike Gardner, Peter Welch.
