Bellringing

If you would just like to see what bellringing is all about come along to ringing practice held every Tuesday at All Saints 7.45 to 9.00pm  For more information on ringing in Hutton contact the Tower Captain, Renee Page-Jones, via the parish office.
 

The Bells at All Saints

There is a long tradition of ringing at All Saints. At the time of the Archdeacon's visit of 1685 he was able to write "five bells in good order".

Two of these bells have survived to the present day. The three dates from 1637, and is inscribed "William Lande made me", and the two was cast in 1655 by Anthony Bartlett. In 1767 the treble and four were either replaced or recast by the Whitechapel Bell Foundry and in 1814 the same was done to the tenor. In 1814 a small gallery was erected within the tower posts but this was not popular with the ringers of the day. At the next major overhaul of 1904/5 the wooden frame which contains the bells was replaced by an iron one, and the gallery was removed, making it a ground floor ring once more. In 1979 the bells were rehung and the plain bearings replaced by ball bearings, making the bells easier to ring.
