A Storm-Lashed British Isle Famous For Church Bells, Populated By Few

The second part of NPR's series on maritime Britain begins on a small ferry en route to the storm-lashed island of Lundy. Pirates once awaited their prey on the three-mile-long island. Today, there are 28 permanent residents, all employed by a conservation group, though some 2,000 bell ringers have made the pilgrimage to the island's old Gothic church.
