Would You Like to Have a Go and keep these bells ringing?

Ringing does not require great strength, it's more about technique. Ringers range from 9+ years to sometimes 90 years so its very often a family affair. Come along to a practice night and have a look.

About the bells

The original 5 bells were recast in 1688 and hung in the same wooden frame.   The bells were out of action during the WW2 years until in 1957 when a treble bell was added making a ring of 6 bells and the bells were rehung in a new steel frame.    At this point a new band of ringers needed to be trained. For the Millennium 2 additional bells were cast making the present-day ring of 8 bells.  Details on the bells are as follows: -
