The Story of Piddinghoe’s Bells

Piddinghoe Book Ring In The New about the Bells Project

Ring In The New is the story of Piddinghoe’s Bells and how a small village at the foot of the Sussex Downs restored their 300 year old church bells.

Along the way we inspired students from our local secondary school to be oral historians, taught primary school children the art of handbell ringing, commissioned a new piece of music, made a documentary and most importantly, gathered memories, experiences and recollections from Piddinghoe’s community.

The book is available from Gavin and Brigid Simmonds in The Malthouse, Piddinghoe. Copies are £5 each and are sold. in aid of St. Johns Bells Restoration Fund. Please email Brigid if you would like to purchase a copy.
