The Tudor bells so dangerous...

2 posts in this topic

This video captures Britain's heaviest set of five church bells being rung by hand in a Tudor cage despite being so dangerous it was sealed off for two years.

Ringers have to wear protective earmuffs while swinging the metal bells back and forth as they hit 125 decibels (dB) - the same level as a thunderclap - in front of their faces in the otherwise quiet village of East Bergholt in Suffolk.

The deafening instruments, with a combined weight of 4.25 tons, were silenced for two years after a bell crushed one ringer's hand and broke another's arm in 1999.
