Silencing the bells


Sir, – I see that the chimes at St Bartholomew’s church have been silenced because somebody thinks they are too loud (Front page, September 21st). I live about 100 yards from them and I really like them, night and day.

Even if I didn’t, surely the fact that they got here more than 130 years before me, gives them greater right to continue as they are. – Yours, etc,
