Dennis Brock, Bell Captain at St Mary’s Church, Sunbury

When Wycliffe came around to seek knowledge our fine old tower at St Mary’s church I felt honoured and privileged to discuss the practical side of the bells installation and learn valuable details of the tower construction.

I then had the pleasure of introducing him to the art of handling a bell in full circle – my oldest people ever! Despite his age and the tricky spiral stairway with his good sense of rhythm he persevered – we loved having him with us.
