Sharing His Love

When do we ring?

We ring regularly on Sunday mornings,
usually from 08:45 - 09:30 and on Tuesday evenings
from 19:30 - 21:00. We also ring for weddings, funerals, other services and on other occasions.
You can see our ringing calendar here:
ledbury bellringers.
When viewing the calendar,
you can click on an event for more information.

Tuesday practices are permanent open house, so please come and say hi.
If you're interested, we can then arrange a time to show you the bells and have a go.
You can usually find us in the Prince of Wales afterwards.

How can I find out about learning to ring?

Visit the Ledbury district ringers website for details of our training program,
or for more general info go to www.bellringing.org

Or just come and see us in the tower.

The Bells

We have a full octave of eight bells. On paper they seem a rather motley collection, cast over two centuries,
but as their glorious sound drifts through the air, you'd never know.
We can thank the bell foundry John Taylor & Co of Loughborough and their re-hang in 1951 for that. To find out more about the bells, check out their entry on the Hereford diocesan guild of bell ringers website.

The Clock

The clock was installed in 1900 and has a carillon, which in this case at least is more correctly described as ‘extended clock chimes’.
It chimes the quarter hours, the hours
and at 9am. Midday, 3pm and 6pm
also plays a hymn tune.

There is a different hymn tune for each day of the week, as follows:

O Worship The King All Glorious Above
Ye Choirs Of New Jerusalem
Conquering Kings Their Titles Take
O Holy Spirit Lord Of Grace
Jesu Our Hope Our Hearts Desire
Thy Way Not Mine O Lord
Through The Night Of Doubt And Sorrow
