Bell Ringing


Bell Ringing

Bellringing is a great team activity, sociable, challenging, excellent exercise and most of all fun.

The Bakewell band ring from 10.00 – 10.30 before the 10.30 Sunday morning service, and also ring quarter peals from time to time before Sunday 18.00 evening and special services. They will ring occasionally for funerals.

Practice night is Thursday, from 19.30-21.00 in the belfry. New learners are always very welcome indeed.

Here is an information leaflet about the All Saints Church bells and clock: Bakewell Bells & Clock
