World record bell ringing

A WORLD record attempt will be taking place in Bakewell on Sunday – as 100 bell ringers descend on the town.

Bakewell Parish Church will be hosting the event at 2pm to celebrate 100 years of the Ringing World publication.

Ringers from across the county will be ringing bells for 100 minutes at the church’s historic eight bell tower.

Visitors are invited to come and listen, have a cup of tea and find out what bell ringing is all about from the experts involved.

There will also be an opportunity to have a go at ringing with handbells.

Ringing will start at 2.20pm and will finish at 4.30pm.
