Bell Ringing at St.
There is a long tradition of both tower bell ringing and handbell ringing at St. Mary’s Church. Adults and children can learn the art of tower bell ringing and handbell ringing (children from the age of 12 for tower bell ringing and from the age of 8 for handbell ringing).
Tower Bell ringing practice is every Tuesday evening from 7:45 to 9:00pm.
If you would like further information about tower bell ringing or the Church Bells then please contact Rachel Backhouse, the Tower Captain, through the Parish Office.
Founded in 1965 by
Bill Butler whilst he was tower captain at the church, Barfield Handbell
Ringers is a thriving, active team of 16 ringers. They practise at the church
on Monday evenings, 7.30-9.30pm, and perform at concerts, festivals and many
other occasions throughout the year. New
members are always welcome.
