The Bells of Wrington
Such is the case for the good people of Wrington in Somerset who, thanks to the complaints of a newly arrived couple of residents, have had to turn off the chimes of the clock tower on the 15th century All Saints Church.
It seems that the chimes, that have rung each quarter hour for a hundred years, were not to the tastes of the newcomers who complained to North Somerset Council.
The council duly dispatched an enforcement officer, who declared that is was a "clear statutory noise nuisance". The council then issued an enforcement notice, forbidding the ringing of the chimes between 11pm and 7am. Unfortunately, because the chimes cannot be turned of at night, the chimes must be silenced 24 hours a day and the bells of Wrington no longer ring (there's a pun there folks!).
Call me old fashioned, but if you choose to buy a house next to church that has bells and chimes, then you might well expect them to make a noise as a result of the effluxion (there's a word I should use more often) of time.
