Re: Church bell

We live right next to a Church, as our house was the Vicarage for 4.5 Centuries. Bells just twice a day, 12.00 noon and 10pm. Thursday evening at 7pm- and very rare weddings and funerals. And the great joy is that we have large green Church grounds in front of us with massive majestuous trees 100s years old, and we know it will never be built on. Hurrah.


We have an apartment next to a large Church in England- it rings 4 bells every quarter, then the hour- so at midnight, 28 bells- as loud as Big Ben. And 1 to 1-5 hrs bell ringing practice on a Monday evening - right in line with our bedroom on second floor. So no, it is not 'just a Swiss thing'.
