DISCOVERING BELLS AND BELLRINGING

JOHN CAMP    Book Number: 86544    Product format: Paperback

Calling all campanologists is the late John Camp, who first became interested in bell ringing in 1950s. His book is not a technical treatise on the art of ringing or bell sounding, but more a history of 'the exercise' through the ages. It is one unique aspect of the British countryside - the sound of the church bells. Only in Britain is change-ringing, or the ringing of bells in special sequences, so widely practised. Bell ringing usually takes place regularly in some 6,000 church towers and is regarded by non-ringers as something of a mystique. Here is much fascinating information on famous bells and towers, inscriptions, peal boards and ringers' rules, ringers versus clergy and a glossary of ringing terms. Photos and line art. 56 page Shire paperback.
