Decibel tests are to be taken on the centuries-old clock chimes at St Peter’s church because of a single complaint from a neighbour.
The tower of the Grade 1 listed building rings out the time every quarter hour throughout the day and night but it’s become too much for one resident.
The mystery objector, who is believed to live in St Peter’s Street, has called for Dover District Council to investigate the noise level which it is obliged to do. Tests will be conducted at night.

However, Sandwich Town Council says it will resist any attempt to silence the chimes.
Sandwich Local History Society and The Sandwich Society have conducted a survey which found that 85% of 277 people living in close proximity to the church do not want to end the tradition.
