It's not quite the spire but a rare chance to get to touch the chapel bell. Very cramped conditions up there hence the poor photo's.

I love to hear Church Bells.
Haven't heard that one in a
long, long time.
Don as you know lived just
a couple of doors from the Chapel,
he said he seldom heard it.

I hear it all the time.. Looking out at it from our utility room. One time I was speaking with Marie Murray St. Catharines on the phone and she heard the St. Peters Bell from the phone.. so Don must have had other fish to fry other than listening to the Bell.. It was part of our lives in Mary Street when I was growing up and will be again. DV

I see the little Smilie is enjoying
listening to the music.
I would need a set of those as well.

Deirdre - Don was such a sound sleeper
and still is, that even the Bell chiming,
didn't waken him.

I always seem to time myself, that
whenever I am going into Church here,
the Bells (3) are ringing.
You could probably fit all 3 inside
St.Peter's Bell.
They are not deafening by any means,
they have such a nice chime.

Brian have u any decent sound recording equipment to record the bells sometime? And perhaps attach the sound file? Maybe it's been done already.

They can be recorded with my camera (or any camera for that matter) as its HD but I can get my hands on an HD video camcorder with manual levels that might make a better job of it - most phones will have limiters and what have you and wont do a great job - only thing remains is to work out when to record them :D

;) Someone pointed out to me earlier that I might want to have a look at the initials on the wood below the bell in the last photo.
I wonder who the EK,S McS and Chris could be :| :| :D

The scaffolding is down now and the church looks well... Plastic spiking on the ledges to discourage the pigeons.. I posted pictures just yesterday on FB as it is easier for me to do that than on here....

It's actually fairly simple to add photos here - I have changed the tutorial to make it a bit easier to understand and you will find it here:

Any problems let me know :D
