Honouring the new King …

Bellringers for Coronation

… and making Buriton proud 

On the morning of Coronation Day, 6th May 2023, a band of ringers at Buriton’s St Mary’s church rang a peal of Cambridge Surprise Minor. 

Not only did they ring for a solid three hours but they achieved 8th place on Bellboard’s listing of highest-ranking peal performances over the Coronation weekend. Above them were the likes of Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s Cathedral and six other Cathedrals.  

They received fantastic reviews from all in the village who had the privilege of hearing such magnificent ringing.
