Beyond Bob Doubles, East Tytherley on Wednesday 25th July

Dear All,

This month’s Beyond Bob Doubles will be at East Tytherley on Wednesday 25th July.  There will be five and six bell ringing for those that want it, but also triples and major, so anything from Grandsire Doubles up to Stedman Triples and Little Bob.  All welcome from within the W+P and beyond.


Amazing tenacity of these ringers in 1935 – very humbling

St. Peter’s East Tytherley:

18/09/1935 5024 Bob Majorin 3 hours 19 minutes (14 cwt). (Composed and conducted by George Williams).

Three ringers, each of whom lost an arm in the Great War, took part together in a peal of Bob Major. They were Messrs. H Balaam (Basingstoke), G Pullinger (Bishopstoke), and J W Faithfull (Southampton).

They were all ringers before the war, and it says much for their enthusiasm that, despite the handicap of having lost a limb, they have kept up active participation in the art. All these ringers, as well as other one-armed men, have previously rung peals, but this is believed to be the first occasion that three have taken part in the same peal.


1. Reginald C H Connolly

2. Harry Balaam

3. George Pullinger

4. John W Faithfull

5. Edward B Hampton

6. Louis J Lockyer

7. George Williams (C)

8. John Chesterman

Steve Hough writes:

On Saturday 24th October Eling ringers had their first Outing in quite a few years. Organised by yours truly, for the benefit of our newer ringers to give them experience ringing at different towers. A good day out apart from the weather!
