Bells and Ringing

Bell ropesChange ringing has been a tradition in this country for several centuries. Its purpose is to call people to worship, and in Blockley we try to ring before services. 

Ringing is a blend of music, friendship, exercise and sport; a challenge to wits and skill, and wonderful when you get it right!

The recast 'Barry High' tenor bellOur original peal of eight bells was rehung in 2017 with the addition of two new bells - a Treble and a Second.

Practice is on Thursday evenings from 7.30pm until 9.00pm. 

New ringers are always welcome - contact Ann Bourne, the Tower Captain on 01386 700250.The new peal of 10 bells, picture Tony Skellett
