A Peal to start 2016 at Winchester Cathedral

Roy LeMarechal reports:
After a brief time watching and waiting for skaters to fall over on the ice rink, the ringers ascended the tower. After minimal “faffing around”, they set off for a peal of Yorkshire Maximus. As I predicted the ringing was never “cracking”. However, apart from a few occasions when some ringers fell off their lines, the ringing was generally of a competent and reasonable standard. Dave Mattingley set a good pace on the tenor and Ben Carey handled the tricky and unpredictable 13th like he’d been doing it all his life 🙂 Well done to all the ringers for putting in their best effort on these excellent but challenging bells.
