Peal Attempt -Yorkshire Maximus at Winchester Cathedral New Year’s Day 11am

If you’d like to hear some cracking ringing AND be inspired….

Winchester Cathedral has kindly offered their bells to our Guild for a peal on New Year’s Day once again so, if you’re in the area or wanting somewhere specific to go on the day, the peal should get underway at approximately 11 a.m and if all goes well it will continue until well after 2pm.

Method chosen – Yorkshire Surprise Maximus. (This  method will make use of 12 of the Cathedral’s ring of 14 Bells. Yorkshire Maximus is a very musical method, not routinely rung because of its complexity and the number of skilled ringers and bells required).

Apparently an Ice Rink will still be in situ in the vicinity so great fun could be had there, as well, but bear in mind parking might be challenging!

My personal thanks to Roy Le Marechal, Edd Colliss and Bruce Purvis for helping me get the peal organised.
