Its no wonder Andrew that they sound as bad as they do, the wheel on the left looks buckled.,

Thank you Andrew for a view few people have seen.
Comment by Anne on 25th March 2015 at 08:42
No, not buckled. Look a little farther and you will see other "buckling" owing to the lens used.
Excellent once again Andrew.

Any bats in residence!! LOL

Tommy, no HDR used - just a very long exposure and a bit of help from the light from my phone.

Garry - it isn't. It's a straight shot that you are so fond of.

Well done Andrew lad.

See photo #24313, first on 3rd row in Places, Parish Church Wigan.
For more photo`s of the bell room and bell ringing room taken by Brian, see New Gallery, Wigan Parish Church.
You can listen to these bells on You Tube, see :-
Don`t like your photo Andrew - too `distorted`

I know what you mean, Ernest! Unfortunately the only way I could get the whole view was with a fisheye lens which does indeed distort the view. Having said that, it was going dark with little light in there and there may be another viewpoint that I couldn't see at the time - I'll have a look later in the summer and report back!
Comment by Ernest Pyke on 26th March 2015 at 15:56
Thanks for that Andrew; are we going to have a summer though!

The bells have not been used for years i was told when working on the copper roof in the sixties it is a recorded sound.
Comment by Andrew on 27th March 2015 at 20:28
Dave, thankfully, the bells are used very week!
