Audio of church bells ringing in the evening, about 10 meters away from the recorder. The church is the lovely little "All Saints" church in Witley, England. There was some wind interference, which I have tried to edit out.

    Great sound - I want to use it for a recording of a Good Omens podfic, which is told from the point of view of a vicar point and I intend to use the bells as chapter divider. Will of course credit you, once it is puplished.

    Thank you for this sound clip! We have used it for the wedding scene in our play, Nicholas Nickleby. We were supposed to perform life, but due to Covid, we ended up filming our show and it will be available on Youtube Aug 28-30, 2020. To watch, register at https://encoreencore.org/lmt-events/

    Thanks for making these beautiful church bells available to us. Today a friend, who lives in our condo complex, arrived home, after weeks in hospice, in an ambulance in order to finish out his days at home with his wife. We played the bells - Loudly - over a Bluetooth sound bar ,that we put out on our deck for the occasion, while he was carried on a stretcher from the ambulance and into his condo building. The bells earned a brief glance and a slight wave of acknowledgement.
    Again, thanks Inspector3 for posting the sound file.

    This was perfect for a coronation segment in a video on Tudor England: www.youtube.com/watch?v=FX7byjbUM1k Also used your Crow Call sound effect earlier in the video. Thanks!
