The Salisbury Diocesan Guild of Ringers was founded on 14th September 1882 under the patronage of the Bishop and the presidency of the Right Honourable the Earl Nelson; the Archdeacons of Dorset, Sarum and Wiltshire being Vice Presidents; the Revs Wright-Anderson, T F Bigg, and C W Hony being Honorary Secretaries, to promote bellringing as part of the life of the Church.
We encourage ringing of all standards from call-changes to methods and ringers of all standards and inclination are very welcome.
If you are ever in the area please feel free to pop in on a practice night, all our towers provide the warmest of welcomes even in the colder months!
