Haworth History - Haworth Change - Ringing


Change Ringing:

The traditional English art of ringing a set of tower bells in an intricate series of changes, or mathematical permutations (different orderings in the ringing sequence), by pulling ropes attached to bell wheels. On five, six, or seven bells, a peal is the maximum number of permutations possible (120, 720, and 5,040, respectively); on more than seven bells.
