Our Towers

Individual visiting ringers are welcome to come along to a scheduled practice. It is advisable to contact a tower in advance to check that their practice is proceeding as planned, particularly during holiday periods. Practices generally do not take place on Bank Holidays. Groups of visiting ringers should contact the tower to make arrangements for access.

See the map for the locations of all the towers.
