From The Scottish Heritage Trust’s – St Michael’s – A Short History – 30 March 2010
“Bell Tower. Built in 1930 with a full carillon of eight bells. Erected by Sir William Raeburn in memory of his wife and four children, who tragically predeceased him.”
Date: March 2021
St Michael’s are looking for people interested in joining the bell ringing rota when the church reopens for worship.
St Michael’s has a peal of 8 bells played carillon style (one person using levers to play the bells). An ability to read music would be helpful but is not essential and training will be given.
The commitment is not onerous: approximately every 5 or 6 weeks depending on the number of people on the rota. You will need to be able to physically access the bell tower using a narrow staircase.
If you are interested, or would like more information, please email Bell Ringers St Michaels.
