Blessing of the River Thames this Sunday

Sunday 11th January 2015
Prior to the Annual Blessing of the River Thames members from the Southwark Cathedral Society rang a quarter peal of Plain Bob Minor in 35 minutes which was followed by service ringing on the 12 bells at St Magnus the Martyr.

At 12.30 a quarter peal attempt took place which coincided with the start of the Blessing of the River Thames. Although the attempt was unsuccessful the bells rang out across the River Thames throughout the blessing.

Following the Blessing, a full peal of Spliced Treble Dodging Maximus in 5 methods was rung for the Annual Blessing of the River Thames which took 3 hours 21 minutes.

Full details of the successful quarter peal and peal can be found on the Ringing World website.
