Bells Ring Out in York for the Royal Wedding

06 May 2011

The medieval church of Holy Trinity Goodramgate, in the heart of York, celebrated the Royal Wedding on 29th April by ringing its early 16th century bell.  The bell dates to 1526 and is inscribed with the words “Jesus be our spede.” Owing to the antiquity of the bell, it is seldomly rung.

To further celebrate this glorious occasion The Churches Conservation Trust commissioned a local flower arranging society, the Acomb Flower Guild, to lavishly decorate the chancel with a stunning multi-tiered floral display of pink and white roses. The church welcomed over one hundred visitors during the afternoon.
