My cat died, and it affected me as much as losing my dad. And so, like all East Anglian children, I knew that Tacolneston was pronounced tackle-st'n , before I ever saw that place-name written down. Well, television programmes are broadcast twenty-four hours a day now, and I don't suppose that Anglia shows the old Eastern European fairy tales anymore.
And in any case, I got rid of my television a couple of years back.

But, as I cycled into the village, I was pleased to see the great transmitting aerial still standing in a field to the west, like a totem of my childhood. As far as the pleasures that the village of Tacolneston had to offer went, it was all a bit downhill after that.
The church is to the north, at a busy bend in the road, a handsome building which is cheerfully overgrown with virginia creeper. Now, I know this is bad for a building, but it always looks good. There is an elegant red brick Tudor window in the south side of the nave, and the tower is a fine confection of work from the 14th, 15th and early 16th centuries.
I rubbed my hands in anticipation, because I knew that there were similar survivals inside. However, my excitement was dashed at this point, because All Saints is locked without a keyholder. Now, I hadn't expected this. I had headed up from near Diss, and virtually every single church had been open. At Forncett I hit a belt of locked churches with keyholders, but here at Tacolneston even the keyholders petered out. Someone had scrawled across the top of the electoral roll which was surprisingly brief, considering what a large village this is Where in God's name is the key to this church?
And, since my visit, I have contacted other Norfolk church explorers, and they report the same experience. Tacolneston is exactly the kind of place where the church needs to be open. It is a large village, with lots of young families who need to feel a sense of ownership. It is on a busy road, and frequent indeed must be the strangers and pilgrims who pass this way, and who would appreciate a spot of spiritual refreshment. Now, I am not suggesting that the parish put up a sign that says Come in and rest for a while , although I can think of half a dozen Norfolk churches that do have something like this, but a keyholder would be a start.
It's awful. The debate about who is to blame has been raging in the letters pages of the bell ringing journal, The Ringing World. The bellfounders on the project, Taylors Eayre and Smith, said they gave specific instructions to the architect about what grout to use when fixing the bell frame. They said that this mix was changed by the architect and it has resulted in the frame pulling away from the walls.
Rev OMalleys Letter
The vicar, Rev Chris Ivory, claims some blame lies with the bellfounders due to the type of frame used, but concedes there is an issue with the grout mix. In his latest letter to The Ringing World, Bob Smith, from Taylors, Eayre and Smith, said: "All ringing has been stopped because the frame is now so loose in the tower that its movement is excessive and the soft grout is breaking up and falling out of the pockets in the masonry. However, I do not derive any pleasure from this situation which should not have arisen.
www.civitas-albania.com/editor/pejyhuqe/como-rastrear-un-iphone-sin-icloud.html Dr David Cattermole, an expert on bell ringing and a Diocesan adviser in Norfolk, said: "Together with an architect I came up with a plan for the marvellous ring of ten. I have a lot of experience and could have said it wouldn't work.

Robert Lewis, editor of The Ringing World,said: "I think that the local ringers at King's Lynn must be justifiably upset at the extraordinary delay in completing the bell restoration job.
