This is book 11 of the "Lord Peter Wimsey" series.
This note contains spoilers for the book.
Lord Peter puts his car in the ditch on the way to a houseparty, and ends up staying with the local vicar next to the huge fancy church -- on the night they're going to try for 9 hours of change ringing.
Peter gets roped into that, too, having done some before, and some of their usual ringers being down with the flu. And gets involved with an old mystery, a new death, a major drainage project, and a flood.
