Local History of Change Ringing on Handbells

Local History:

Quarter Peals

Before the Hull Handbells Project (between 1964 and 2016), the B&D had recorded 241 handbell quarter peals, an average of under 5 per year, the maximum in any one year being the 27 quarters rung in 1974.

With the Quarter Peal of Kent Treble Bob Minor at Kirk Ella on Tuesday 6th November, 2018, that record was equalled, and has now been surpassed.

Between 1980 and 2016, apart from an upward blip around the millennium, change ringing on handbells was at a low ebb. The Hull Handbells Project started in 2016 and the results started to show in the statistics in 2017.
