It will then open its doors for general ringing from 3pm to roughly 4:30pm to coincide with the arrival of thousands of motorbike enthusiasts, who will be riding from London to Barrow in memory of the beloved Hairy Biker.

Bellringer Andrew Pollock said: "If you are a bellringer - biker or otherwise - you would be most welcome to take part in ringing to welcome everyone to Barrow and celebrate the life of Dave.

"Bikers can listen out at the bottom of Abbey Road as they pass The Furness Railway in-between the Duke of Edinburgh hotel and Ramsden Square roundabout, and hopefully the sound of the bells will just about carry."
