Autumn Display

"Ringing The Changes"

Contributed by Sue Burgess

We are celebrating the 200th anniversary of the re-casting of Holy Trinity Church’s original six bells and the addition of two new ones. They were first rung in September 1815, just three months after Wellington’s victory at Waterloo.

We also look at other aspects of the Church’s history during those two hundred years, show that re-ordering the interior is nothing new, and that general repair, replacement and restoration have been on-going for much of that time.

Although some of the objects on display are from the Museum’s collection, most have been kindly loaned by the Holy Trinity bell ringers, the Churchwardens and Revd. Michael Maine.


1.  Let there be heard no loud voices except the music of the Bells.

2.  Let all unseemly or unnecessary conversation be avoided.

3.  Let there be reverence of thought, word and deed.
