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 Wednesdays at 7.30 pm with Sunday service ringing from about 10.30 am.
