Some account of the foundation, history and members of the Ancient Society of Croydon Ringers

"Countless generations of men have climbed those winding stairs, stairs that have survived the effects of time and fire and were mercifully preserved from enemy bombing, and have gathered in the ringing chamber, there to ply with nimble brain our subtle art"

This fascinating small book was written in 1950 by ringer James Cooper and tells the story of bell ringing at Croydon parish church from the first records in 1599 to the victory celebrations following world war 2.
