Bells and bell-ringing

St Peter’s is one of two churches in Harrogate to have a full ring of bells, and we are the only church in Yorkshire to ring for three services on Sunday. There are 8 bells in F# major, with a 121/2  cwt tenor – a Taylor ring, hung in 1963. Practice night is on Friday from 7pm till 9pm, with a break for tea or coffee at 8.00pm.
“…we are the only church in Yorkshire to ring for three services on Sunday.”
Sunday service ringing is at 9.05am, 10.30am and 5.45pm. There are 56 steps to the ringing chamber, including a spiral staircase and open stairs. Access to the bells is by ladders, and then by wrought-iron spiral staircase to the top of the tower. From the top there is the best view for miles around – on a fine morning we can see York Minster.

sp_103We are fortunate in being able to welcome many visitors who come to the town for conferences or holidays, and who join us for practice and Sunday ringing.  For more information contact Hannah Beck on 01423 564942 or send her an email.
