The Bells

The Bell Chamber

The tower has 10 bells and access to it is gained through the church and across the roof, this leads straight in to the ringing room, above the ringing room is the clock mechanism and above that is the home of all ten bells. You can go right on to the roof of the tower and the view around Ramsgate and surrounding area is quite fantastic.

Here is virtual tour image of the bell chamber, please use your mouse to have a look around..

The Bells

Please hover the mouse over a bell to see more information about it.

The sounds were recorded in the bell chamber, and subsequently shortened to approx 10s.
Bell 9, for example, sounds in excess of 40s.

This is what the neighbours heard:

From: half-muffled quarter peal rung on Good Friday 2011.
With enthusiastic contributions from local wildlife and the odd motorcycle.
