Welcome to our Guild. Since our formation in 1882 we have continued to “promote and encourage Sunday service ringing” and “advance the art of ringing” (from our Aims) and today we have approximately 1450 members and 250 ringable towers in our Diocese.
We also continue to help and assist in the maintenance and restoration of bells and belfries in the Diocese.
You will see from this website that we are an active and vibrant Guild with a wide range of activities organised across eight branches, including recruitment, training and social activities.
We are lucky to have some wonderful rings of bells in our Diocese and all set in some beautiful countryside. These are challenging times for our Guild but we are confident in our present and our future. We continue to work with the clergy of the Diocese and others to keep our bells ringing out to the glory of God – whilst also enjoying our hobby. If you are visiting our Guild I hope you enjoy your ringing and will come back soon.
