A new era of scholarship in campanological research and writing.' RINGING WORLD The beginnings of scientific changeringing now seem most likely, from the considerable body of evidence which has emerged, to have taken place in the eastern counties: and in this classic study Paul Cattermole examines the development of bell-ringing in one county, Norfolk, from the earliest records through to the present day. What he has to say is of general, rather than local, interest, but his information is necessarily drawn from local records. He explores bell-ringers' links with the church and with local communities, using documentary evidence dating back in some cases to the 14th century, and he studies in detail the technical development of church towers and bell frames, identifying and illustrating a number of early examples. PAUL CATTERMOLE, who died in 2009, was for many years Adviser on Bells to the Diocese of Norwich.
