Women in Ringing

In my early years I happily rang the eleventh at York Minster and the tenor at St.Nicholas Pier Head, Liverpool (not to methods). In my late twenties I rang in a tower where women were not allowed to ring heavy bells because one of the ringers thought that 'something would happen to women's insides'. In my thirties I was worried about what might happen when I was pregnant.
