NEW BELLS AT HOLY TRINITY CHURCH COOKHAM


Timmy helped in the fund raising for the new church bells at Holy Trinity, Cookham . 70,000 has been raised for a new frame and two new bells bringing it up to a ring of 10. Timmy started bellringing as a teenager and now it's a family thing with son Billy pulling the ropes too.


Ding dong merrily on high - get that bell off my foot!!



Timmy's cartoon for the Church - er more weird ringing language, are they swearing?



The bishop of Reading says "Don't ask me to pick one up!"!!



My kids are big fans, says the man in purple !!



10 bells will make a fabulous sound!!!!



Back in 1913 when the last frame went in there were just 6 bells and an old vicar!!!



The sound and view from the tower are heavenly!!



Who's bats in the belfry?!!!


The oldest bell at Cookham dates back to 1635 at it's amazing to think they've been rung week in and week out for over 370 years!
It's the weirdest thing to watch bellringing in action! But hey, it sounds good! You can find out more by keeping an ear out any of the thousands of churches with bells.
