Thread: Mrs M pulls Big Peter !

  1. #1

    Default Mrs M pulls Big Peter !

    Mrs M got a chance today to hand ring "Big Peter" the 10 ton bell in York Minster. Unfortunately I wasn't aloud to film it but on of the Minster Vergers took some stills, so I put them together to make this. Looks like Mrs M enjoyed herself.

    As the bell rope doesn't travel much, I presume Bog Peter isn't hung for ringin in the "English" method of circular ringing. (Mentioned as someone who'se still trying to find time to edit a documentary he's filmed about church bells.)

    Nice little sequence. Thansk for posting.

    Couldn't you have sneakily filmed with your TZ9 (or whichever model it is)

    I would have loved to have filmed it but she didn't tell me about it until after the fact.

    I think the Minster is set up with two bell towers. The one where Mrs M did here stuff just has Big Peter. The other tower has the round of bells. They are usually rung with motors etc. BUT are often hand pulled. Only a few people get to hand ring Big Peter. There is a tradition that those who have done it, then leave some graffiti in the tower, this goes back hundreds of years.

    Hi MB
    Loved the title font

    Mrs M is deceptively strong ..... get her on a chin up bar!!! or a rock climbing wall

    Must be deafening in there.

    Glad it made you smile Bob. She is small but very strong. She is a black belt in aikido which means if I don't do as I'm told I get thrown to the floor.

    Put all your weight behind your "Iron Fist" she won't be able to handle your power and won't bully you any more trust me .

    I use to be abused,beaten and raped all the time by my girlfriend till I learned and used the Iron fist on her........Now I can stay up well past 10.00pm and have Pringels ............yes !!!!



    P.s - Please don't tell Mrs M I told you this she might track me down go AWOL on me and beat my sorry ass to a pulp

    Hope you understand.
