As Andrew Case mentions - I only ring at Sowthwick. The politics of the church here is a delicate subject. The ringers that we have, have to consider it a privilege to be able to ring here.

  My view rather based on hearsay I'm afraid. It is called a 'peculiar' 
  locally. I understand that the vicar is an employee of the Estate rather 
  than the Diocese and that he takes his instructions from Mr 
  Thistlethwayte. I also thought that the Bishop of Portsmouth only 
  visited the church when invited to do so by Mr T. Of course this may all 
  be local legend!

  Perhaps Alan will help us a bit more - he rings there.
