Rooftop View & Bells York

St Martin’s Coney Street rang out for the start of Stage 2 of Le Tour de France 2014.  Watch and listen via the rooftop clip below.

The bells were played by hammers as the ringers watched the cyclists pass by.  The crowds looked up at us and the TV helicopters looked down on us.

The church hosted an Open Day all day – loads of people came along to have a go at bellringing, to enjoy the wonderful refreshments and quite simply for another really welcoming part of a great day.

“Venez ici si vous voulez essayez le bellringing. Join us to ring for Le Tour de France at le Yorkshire Festival @YFest2014 #bepartofit maintenant. Allez allez allez”

  1. Hi Rod,
    We’re very much enjoying the race coverage on TV. Magnificent aerial views of so many Yorkshire Churches and it’s great to know that all the numerous people in the crowds we are seeing, have been listening to the bellringers in advance. Sad not to have been able to join you in Yorkshire this weekend but the TV and your emails have helped us to #BePartOfIt. And I did ring on Thursday night for the Depart of course!
