Bells will be rung across East Devon to celebrate St George’s Day - and also to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.

The bells will be rung in a rolling ring, one tower following another, on Saturday, April 23.

The bellringing is being done by the East Devon branch of the Guild of Devonshire Ringers.

The ring will start at Combe Raleigh at 9am, followed by Dunkeswell at 9.30am, Honiton at 10am, Ottery St Mary at 10.30am and Payhembury at 11am.

The afternoon ringing consists of Talaton at noon, Feniton at 12.30pm, Whimple at 1pm, Axminster at 1.30pm, Farway at 2pm, Shute at 2.30pm, Northleigh at 3pm, Colyton at 3.30pm, Kilmington at 4pm, Luppitt at 4.30pm, Offwell at 5pm, Sidmouth at 6pm, Upottery at 7pm, Awliscombe at 7.30pm and Dalwood at 8pm.
