On Thursday evening, 21st April, Haddenham Bellringers rang a quarter peal of Grandsire Doubles to mark the Queen's 90th Birthday.
Grandsire is one of the standard change ringing methods, which are methods of ringing church bells using a series of mathematical permutations rather than using a melody. The Grandsire method is usually rung on an odd number of bells: Grandsire doubles is rung on five working bells.
For keen campanologists and those interested in the technicalities of the Grandsire Doubles, see here.
On Thursday evening, the Haddenham bellringers paying tribute to Her Majesty the Queen were: Melvyn Rose, Phillip Rose, Chris Butterworth, Sue Belgrove, Mick Harrison and John Whitham.
If you've never puffed your way up the tight, winding stone staircase built into the wall of the bell tower at St Mary's Church in Haddenham, you can take an easier look at the bellringers doing their thing by clicking on the following video link:
