There are more than 40,000 bell ringers in the UK who come from all walks of life, but share a fascinating hobby and a commitment to their team. Initial teaching takes place on a one to one basis and most learners will be ready to ring with a band in a few weeks. The skill lies in being able to control a bell that rotates full circle using a rope attached to the wheel. Bells are rung for church services, weddings, special occasions and for pleasure.
Wisborough Green Church has 6 bells, the largest (tenor) bell weighing 12 cwt, 2qrts, 12 lbs.
Practice is on the second and fourth Tuesday every month, beginning at 8.00 pm with Sunday service ringing at 10.00 am.
