Norwich - Ringing endorsement for bell expert

14th August 2009 at 01:00

A teacher who was a leading authority on church bells has died at the age of 68.

Paul Cattermole taught maths at the independent Norwich School for 29 years. But Dr Cattermole was also a noted campanologist and the archivist at Wymondham Abbey. He spent five years carrying out research for The Church Bells of Norwich, published in 2005.

After qualifying as a teacher at Oxford, he taught at King's School in Worcester for 10 years before moving to Norwich as head of maths, where he also co-wrote a history of the school.

When Dr Cattermole retired in 2003, the school magazine noted: "There can be few school master mathematicians, fluent in medieval Latin - and with a pretty good command of French - with a doctorate in campanology.

"I correct myself: there is none other. Paul is unique, as has been his contribution to the school."

A full obituary will appear in next week's TES.
