Guide to the church bells of the Gloucester and Bristol Dioceses, includes ringing times and information on change ringing.
The Gloucester & Bristol Diocesan Association of Church Bell Ringers

We are an association of change ringers covering the Church of England's Bristol and Gloucester Dioceses. These cover the counties of Gloucestershire and north Wiltshire, together with the city of Bristol. A diverse area ranging from Swindon in the south east to the border of Wales in the west and the outskirts of Stratford upon Avon in the north.

Here you can find details of the Association, its organisation and all our towers; ringable or not. Contact details if available are also provided. For those interested there is also an explanation of change ringing.

Use the navigation bar or menu above to find what you need.

In view of the current situation with coronavirus Covid-19 and in accordance with Government and Central Council advice almost all ringing for practice, Sunday service or branch meetings has been suspended. You should therefore consider any ringing times given in the calendar or the tower listings as subject to verification. Please do not travel unless you are absolutely certain that any ringing is actually taking place.
