Centuries-Old Church Bells Silenced After Single Noise Complaint

An historic church which has rung its bells since 1779 is to be silenced after a single noise complaint, in a move residents say threatens the “traditions and history” of the medieval town.

    But who was there first? If the person moved into the area and beside a church want do you expect?

    We have to stop the 1 person wrecks it for all… reminds me of that song that got banned across Canada by one person complaining.

    • David Murrell

      So long as the British do not silence the Muslim’s call to worship, everybody in the Big Establishment is happy.

  • BobSykes

    In 1779, the whiner would have been lynched.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Now stick a dozen loudspeakers on it and blast that minaret noise 5x/day.

  • Andrew Pearce

    No point in ringing the bells anyway. God left England many years back, and now satan runs the place. Except the fools call him allah.

  • P_F

    I betcha the same idiot residence won’t have any complaints from a muzzie call of prayer (adhan) five times a day.

    • Clausewitz

      Most likely the complainant has the name Mohamed either as a first, middle, or last name.

  • Caspar

    This is like those idiots in Toronto that moved beside a garbage dump and then complained about the smell.
