Ringing[edit]

Hi, I've redone your edits to Bell>Ringing. English-style clappers move faster than the bell and strike roughly horizontal going up. If a clapper is on the other side of the bell it is termed "going up wrong" and has the reputation of leading to cracked bells. It's certainly far harder to stand the bell and you get a distinctive double strike when it's up wrong. Martin of Sheffield (talk) 11:06, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

Someone else has proposed this page for speedy deletion. I thought you should know. 7&6=thirteen () 21:14, 22 April 2016 (UTC)

Hi Dougsim. I've fleshed out my ideas from CCCBR a little at talk:campanology. I've left things open for a week (in part to ensure I'm not accused of WP:OWN or similar). Any comments would be appreciated. Regards, Martin of Sheffield (talk) 23:20, 30 April 2016 (UTC)
