The tower recently helped our tower captain celebrate a birthday with a proper traditional coach based ringing outing. This included a repeat of the last tower of the day from the very first Whitacre tower outing back in 1979. A few of us were there then too to repeat the experience on very different bells.

Latest news is that this tower now has the newest ropes after new nylon ropes with sallies have been made up.
Have recently found some wax rubbings of the inscriptions taken of the bells before they were installed in 1977. A much easier task then when access was a lot easier. These rubbings were used as part of the advertising display used to raise money to complete the installation. They show the decorative part of the bells including some names and a image of a King George 1 two guinea gold piece which shows up especially clearly on the second bell. Find out more on the bell detail page.
