Learn to Ring

In the Diocese of London there are over 100 churches or buildings with bells hung for full circle ringing. On a typical Sunday the bells of around 70% of these can be heard being rung either by the local band or by ringers from other towers. The remaining 30% are silent because there simply are no ringers to ring them or the bells are in need of restoration.

The Association is constantly seeking ways to address this situation. Contact with these ‘silent’ towers is made to first ensure that the bells are maintained and kept safe to be rung. Secondly,  to support any opportunity to train a local band.

By having regular ringing at every tower, ideally though the existence of a local band, the Association plays its part in ensuring the continuance of the ancient art of bell ringing. If you would like to find how you can participate in or support this living heritage we look forward to hearing from you using the form below.
