Ringing For The Ghosts (Of Today)

When you’re given the key to the church tower and told not to ring the bells… what’s the first thing you want to do?

Drawing on some Derbyshire legends, and its ghosts both past and present – this is an evocative film centering on the tower and bells of the ancient church of St Mary’s, Wirksworth.

A film by Gavin Repton, written and performed by Mark Gwynne Jones. (Wirksworth Team Ministry, November 2020)
