A peal is a term used in change ringing to describe the process of ringing a certain number of combinations, or permutations in the order of the bells, without repetition of any of the changes. Peals usually consist of between 5000-5280 changes, or permutations, and can take anywhere from one and a half to over four hours to ring, depending on the weight of the bells, and whether hand bells or tower bells are being rung. They are considered to be both a physical and a mental challenge, in that concentration has to be maintained for a long period of time, and each individual ringer has to ring their bell without a break.
