The Bells and Bellringers of York Minster e-book

by David Potter


York’s bellringers have always been volunteers but Angela Mitchell, a campanologist and local headteacher .

York’s bellringers have always been volunteers but Angela Mitchell, a campanologist and local headteacher, has taken up a new part-time contract and a £7,000 salary. Ms Mitchell spent 20 years ringing the Minster’s bells and the cathedral confirmed she was a member of the band dismissed last year in a row over safeguarding fears. The former band was criticised by the Archbishop of York for protesting against the cathedral’s decision to issue a lifetime ban against its president, David Potter.

By the time the meeting was over, the locks to the tower had already been changed, even though all the numbered keys were held by the eight-strong force of York Minster police and only handed to bellringers on request. York Minster is one of only seven churches in the world to have a dedicated police force. The shocked ringers say they offered to go to the tower to change the bells’ position from up to down, safer for a period of abeyance. In July, Potter was excluded by York Minster from its team of volunteer bellringers on safeguarding grounds.

Every year since the Middle Ages the 56 bells of York Minster have marked Remembrance Sunday and Christmas . Alice Etherington, who created the petition and is one of the bell ringers said: The minster has suspended all bell ringing with absolutely no prior warning.

Every year since the Middle Ages the 56 bells of York Minster have marked Remembrance Sunday and Christmas – but this year the historic bells won’t ring out because all of the Minster’s bell ringing volunteers have been sacked. Earlier this week the volunteer bell ringers received a letter from the Rev Canon Peter Moger. The bellringers are very loyal volunteers who give up hours of their time ever week to keep this tradition going.

The Minster's 30 bellringers were let go in October and told a new .

The Minster's 30 bellringers were let go in October and told a new structure would be put in place with a paid head bell ringer. Although the service was held as usual, the bells of the medieval Minster did not ring for the first time since the 14th century, due to the controversial sacking of the entire bell ringing staff.

The Minster bellringers are a happy, united, vibrant, skilled, and dedicated team which has grown and evolved over the past forty years to become the envy of many Cathedrals and parish churches across the country. It includes ringers aged from 11 years to 70 plus.

The bells at York Minster have been silenced because the volunteer bell-ringers have been sacked

The bells at York Minster have been silenced because the volunteer bell-ringers have been sacked. All 30 volunteers were told by York Minster that bell-ringing activity had "ceased with immediate effect". A spokesperson for York Minster said their "agreements were terminated" for a fully trained professional team led by a new head bell ringer. The Minster said: "The main bells will be silent until we have recruited a new team in the New Year.
