"How often is it rung full-circle?"
Not sure how many of the Curfew ringers are actual ringers. There used to be
none, but with the installation of a ring of bells in St Clement's,
Sandwich, more and more ringers have leaked into the Curfew Society. I don't
know whether all ringers would have rung the bell up either (it is about 15
cwt), but I guess it gets rung up once a week. Pure guess though.
