St Hugh’s Church - a little bit of history!

posted 15 Aug 2014, 05:57 by Susan Weaver

The bells:  The bell tower was empty for 107 years, but it now houses three bells from the redundant parish church of Wispington.  Two of the bells are pre-Reformation and still have their original inscriptions.  It is good to hear the bells ringing just before 10am, and calling people to Mass as they used to do before the  Reformation.  Mass is celebrated every day when there is a priest available.  One bell also rings the Angelus prayer at 12noon and 6pm.
