In July 2001, the bell ringers of St. Mary's, Ross-on-Wye kindly allowed me twice to climb the tower and photograph the views from the spire. The first time was early on a Sunday morning and the second time was during their Tuesday evening practise. Whilst there, I took the opportunity to photograph both the bells and ringers. I am aware that the correct term is 'campanologists' but when I used that word in conversation, I was politely corrected - with tongue in cheek, 'We are bell ringers.' Unfortunately the photographs I took were quite fuzzy due to my camera being worn out having taken over 2,000 photographs of Ross with it but I have since been back up the spire, in October 2002, to retake the views. You can listen to the sound of the bells by using the player below.
