I certainly rang at St. John's in 1983 but seem to recall that there was no clapper in one of the bells at the time. Bryan McCahey

I was wondering if anyone might be able to tell me exactly why these bells are unringable?, judging by my own research there was almost certainly a local band here in the 1930s but It would appear that the decline began to set in around the 1970s or 80s. I have also heard a story of a clapper falling out during ringing was this why they where condemned or was it mainly due to tower defects.
Many thanks

p.s when where sacred heart last rung? They where almost certainly ringable in 1988! (per doves)
