A fascinating article appeared in The Buckingham & Winslow Advertiser, 1st August 2014, as part of local historian Ed Grimsdale's series 'Back to the Past'.  In it he has condensed an article which appeared in a Detroit newspaper in 1881 describing an American's experience of bellringing at St James'.
