Bell Ringing

Ringing out in celebration and tolling to mark significant moments in our lives.

The art of ringing

Bells are rung in order of size. To start with, the lightest, smallest bell known as a treble goes first, followed by each one until the largest, heaviest tenor bell ends the sequence of five (at present) in the tower. When this is repeated, the bells are said to be rung in ‘rounds’.

To vary the ringing, two adjacent bells change position by one speeding up and the other slowing down; this is repeated through all the bells as ‘change-ringing’. Ways of doing this have developed through the years so that the sound is not repeated.  These ‘methods’ are given names and are learnt and memorised by ringers; they don’t have written ‘music scores’.
