One of Wiltshire’s landmark churches has rung a peal of 5,040 Grandsire Triples to mark the centenary of its bells being installed.

The eight members of the bell-ringing team at Christ Church in Bradford on Avon completed the feat on Saturday (January 13) in just two hours and 46 minutes.

It marked the centenary of Christ Church bells being installed and the first peal rung on the bells on January 2, 1924 in three hours and ten minutes.

The group were Treble Rachel Walters, 2 Nicki Lang, 3 Sarah Quintin, 4 Harriet Feilding, 5 Robert Perry (conductor), 6 Richard Iles, 7 Tim Hawkings and tenor David Godwin.

The bells at the landmark Christ Church on the north side of Bradford on Avon were cast and installed by Gillett and Johnson of Croydon in November 1923.

The eight bells were kindly donated by the family of Colonel William Llewelyn-Palmer as a memorial to family members lost in the First World War.

The Grade II* listed Christ Church bell tower and church interior are undergoing a massive restoration project that is not yet complete.

It has already seen the church's ancient clock face and dials repaired and restored to their former glory with money from donations and the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
