Bell Ringers
On 8 June 1906, this team of ringers added yet another record to those set by the Mottram ringers throughout the 19th century. They rang Mr E TIMBRELL's peal of Kent Treble Bob Major, consisting of 16,680 changes, in nine hours and 40 minutes.
Two of the ringers may be relatives. Second left, front row, is Joseph GODDARD, while second right, back row is John HARRISON, who married Chalotte RHODES.
