Dove’s Guide for Church Bell Ringers

Ringing is well within the capabilities of most people. The initial learning takes several weeks, after which you can begin to ring with the rest of the band (that’s what we call a team of people who ring together). Most ringers practise once or twice a week and ring before or after church service on Sunday. Major restoration in which the cast iron “H” frames were cleaned and rebuilt on galvanised steel RSJs. The bells were tuned and given all new fittings and electromagnetic chiming hammers and rehung in rebuilt frame. We show a founder's name even if it is only postulated that he is so and then indicated by a leading question mark. It is important to remember that we have to make a decision as to which is the most helpful founder name to show. Thus, where there is a degree of uncertainty (e.g. a bell coming from one particular foundry), it may be most helpful to show the name of the most likely founder rather than the generic title of the foundry, even though others might prefer to opt for the less specific ascription. Bells tuned and rehung with new fittings. Bell frame cleaned and painted/treated and upper tier secured to the tower walls

Share stories and receive support (not just about ringing) and friendship in the pub after practice U/R, 9–0–9 (461 kg) in G. Unringable; future plans: to be restored allowing full-circle ringing to resume.
