Bell ringers

Bell ringers 2014

Click here for sound.

There are 6 bells in the tower, ranging from 3cwt to 12cwt, some of which date back to the 16th century.

The bells are rung before most Sunday services, for practise on Monday evenings at 19:30 and for special events such as weddings.
The ringers are members of the Derby Diocesan Association of Church Bellringers (DDA) and the East Derbyshire & West Nottinghamshire Association of Church Bellringers (EDWNA). The younger ringers are in the Chesterfield District Young Ringers' Club.

Ringing activities include: visiting other local practice nights, attending association events at local towers, social events such as barbeques, going on outings, ringing on holiday, ringing quarter peals and having a great deal of fun!
All visitors and new recruits are made most welcome. If you are a visiting ringer, or just want to watch and/or have a taster lesson, please contact the Tower Captain (Sue Hall via contact us).

Bell ringing is a fantastic activity for teenagers, older children and adults. To discover why please visit the Discover Bell Ringing website. Further information is also available on the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers website or via the downloadable leaflet (You will need Adobe reader installed to view this, if you don't have it, you can download it via the link at the bottom of this page). More information is available on the notice board.
