Middlesex Ringing for 800th Lord Mayor’s Show Day









A band of twelve members of the Middlesex County Association & London Diocesan Guild arranged by master Geraldine Forster successfully rang a special touch of 800 changes of Stedman Cinques at St Mary le Bow. Cheapside, on Saturday 14th November to celebrate the 800th anniversary of Lord Mayor’s Show Day.  The details of the ringing and band were pre-prepared on a peal-type board, which added to the pressure of scoring on the day over the noise of the procession outside the church.  In the event the touch was successfully rung twice for good measure!
