Learn to ring


Whether you are new to ringing or are not (yet) a ringer and would just like to find out more, then we hope you will find some useful information on this page.

Thinking of learning to ring?

Bellringing is great fun. It helps keep you fit (as does walking up the tower steps), it keeps your brain active and it’s a great team and social activity. Once you have learned to ring you will be part of a network of ringers and friends extending from your own area across the country, and even across the world.

New recruits are always welcome. If you can climb stairs and you can count to 10, then you can learn to ring (although some towers may have lower age limits). The Association has members ranging in age from 10 to 90+, and from all walks of life. It takes a little time to learn, but you will have a great sense of achievement once you have mastered the skill.

If you would like to learn to ring, then have a look at the map on the 'Towers' page and find out which is your nearest church (tower) with bells. If there are contact details there you can contact them direct. If not, the branch secretary will be able to put you in touch with them or suggest another place where you could learn.

The Association is divided up into nine branches. The secretary for each branch will have details of all the towers (churches with bells) in their area.
