Re: Church bell

Are there 24/7 church bells ringing away in the rich people's neighborhoods?
I don't claim to know, but there might be an existential answer to this question somewhere there.

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'.
That sort of noise would conjure up repeated images of Panzerfaust without fail.
