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
Training Day

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.
