  • "As a ringer myself, I am assuming you are talking about the bell's at St Helen's Witton? I ring there from time to time. As far as the night you referred to in your entry goes, you are mistaken, as their practice night is on a MONDAY, not Tuesday. Those particular bells were cast and placed in the tower in 1911, and, forgive me if I'm wrong, but the bells have therefore been there a much longer period of time than you have! I suggest that if you don't like the fact that this has been the situation for 103 years, then either: move abode; go to Safestyle UK or invest in some earplugs."

DO church bells not count as noise pollution or disturbing the peace?

I have to put up with the constant sound of ringing bells from as early as 8.30am every Sunday.

This disturbs my sleep on a regular basis. This is as well as, what I can only assume, is bell practice on Tuesday nights. I’m fairly sure I’d get arrested if I stood outside blasting my horn full blast.
