From BathBranchRinging

At midday on Saturday 14th January a band made up of nearly all Bath Branch ringers gathered at the foot of the tower stairs at Wells Cathedral to attempt a peal of Grandsire Caters on the heaviest 10-bell ring in the world!

We began just after 12pm in the bright sunshine and finished nearly three and a half hours later in a considerably darker belfry feeling considerably more tired, but having scored the following peal [1] :
