Another wonderful Somerset band rang – BRIDGWATER

In the north of Somerset is the important market town of BRIDGWATER whose church, St. Mary’s rang out on its 8 bells to celebrate ST. GEORGE’s Day.  The church has a very tall tower standing as it does in the heart of the town.  It was used by the Duke of Monmouth to survey the King’s encampment based in Westonzoyland before he marched to his defeat at the Battle of Sedgemoor in 1685.

And here is the happy band from left to right back row: Keith Lane, Eric Wood, Sean Maltravers, Richard Lee.  Left to back front row: Kate Bennett, Jane Cork, Carol Wood, Margaret Lee (C) Hasu Watson.
