A large turnout for a fascinating day with lots of practical activities.

Credit goes to Tony Crabtree and Anthony Willamson for a very well organised and attended Towers & Belfries course.

The day’s events were hosted by Lower Heyford and additional teaching opportunities were provided by Middleton Stoney and Weston-on-the-Green.

Activities covered included rope splicing, installing ropes, changing rope heights and adjusting lengths at Lower Heyford; Improvements and odd struckness and general maintenance at Middleton Stoney; and sound control and tower improvement at Weston-on-the-Green.

An excellent lunch was provided by the The Bell in Lower Heyford with ample cake, tea and biscuits in the afternoon.

Thoroughly recommended for Steeple keepers and the curious alike.
