More than a century of village history could end at a church in Wylam if younger bell-ringers cannot be found.
After 126 years of unbroken bell-ringing at St Oswin's Church, only half a dozen loyal ringers remain.
There are six volunteers to ring the church's six bells, the youngest member 60 and the oldest 83.
The Northumberland church are making a plea to help the long standing tradition to continue.
