Hi Oliver

I rang at Foxearth about 20 years ago - I hadn’t been ringing very long and it was one of my first “interesting” towers!

The ring is anticlockwise and you ring around a clock case in the middle of the ringing chamber. I recall a “shelf” along one side, which sallies had a tendency to land on if they weren’t controlled properly, particularly during a raise or lower! (My sally behaved, but my tower captain at the time struggled!) I have no memory of how the bells sounded.

Someone once told me that it was due to a poor frame but I now suspect that it might be something to do with an ill placed mezzanine floor. I’m also interested to know if anyone has any memories of ringing here? As I understand they where particularly interesting.
