The village of METHWOLD in Norfolk has a ST.GEORGE with 8 bells that will ring on April 23rd. The village sits on an elevated position being named after the Saxon ‘Methelwaud’ – middle high point. The church is much loved and unique in that it has the only remaining corona and tower of its type since the belfry in Bruges burnt down. English Heritage gave it a Grade 1 listing and helped restore it to its present glory. Being on a high point the church with its dramatic steeple and tower can be seen for miles around as it catches the setting sun on the fens. It will remind everyone that April 23rd is England’s Day as it hears the bells celebrating.
