One of the highlights of my recent trip to England was observing bell ringing at Bath Abbey. I was there August 31 to September 2 and at one point just happened to notice a small sign on a back door of the Abbey that said something like: Bell Ringing Sunday 10 am.
I walked over to the Abbey shortly before ten and met one of the bell ringers outside who told me they ring the bells between services and the enjoy having the public observe (it's why they put the sign on the door). He warned me there were something like 120 steps and a trip across the roof to get to the bell tower, but I was up for it.
The bell ropes hang down through holes in the ceiling and first they ring the bells to get them in an upright position. After that they can start the actual change ringing which sends the bells completely around. Fascinating and beautiful.
If anyone is in Bath on a Sunday morning, I recommend watching the bells being rung.
