If you're a ringer, you're very welcome to

Great fun and mentally stimulating, Church

rewarding activity!
History of the bells
Almondsbury has a fine peal of eight bells,
the tenor weighing 22cwt and dating back
to 1601 - or perhaps even earlier!

Restoration Project (ABRP)
Welcome

The bells below Almondsbury's famous crooked spire have been ringing out over the village for at least four hundred years.

The art of ‘change ringing’, as well as serving the Church, its congregation and the community, provides mental stimulation and a most enjoyable form of physical exercise.

We ring the bells regularly for Sunday Service, Wedding and notable events both local and national.
Our bells and our ringers

The tenor bell, which weighs more than 22 cwt, bears an inscription that includes the date 1601, and the steps of the spiral staircase giving access to the ringing chamber are well worn by the feet of the many ringers that have climbed them to ring the bells.

The current band range in age from early teens to over eighty, with one family having been ringers at Almondsbury for at least three generations.
Ring with us

We're always keen to welcome experienced ringers, and we'll do our best to accommodate your level of expertise. Feel free to contact us in advance of your visit if you prefer.

If you've never rung a church bell, but would like to give bell ringing a try, pop along to the belfry on a Sunday morning or a Monday practice evening and meet the band.

Young or mature, you can be sure of a warm welcome and the beginning of a lifelong friendship.
