2011 London Twelve Bell Competition

St Leonard's Church, Shoreditch

This year's London 12 bell competition was be held at Shoreditch on Saturday 22 October, and was being hosted by the SRCY.

The day started with breakfast being served at 10am, and the draw at 11am after a welcome from the vicar Rev. Paul Turp. The first team started at 11.30am as the beer tent out the front started to make its mark. The test piece was 6 leads of Cambridge S Maximus, with it coming round with plain hunt at the wrong. The last 4 leads were marked.

The results were given at 4.30pm by the chief judge Bill Hayne. They are as follows:
