Bell-ring­ing in Devon is dif­fer­ent to the rest of the UK. It’s more rhyth­mi­cal and mu­si­cal. The ringers don’t have to learn al­go­rith­mic pat­terns off by heart and the bells don’t have to change place each time they strike. Devon ringers feel their art has been ig­nored, re­garded by many as ‘back­ward’ and parochial. Join pre­sen­ter He­len Marks as she ex­plores the his­tory of this dis­tinct style.
