Bell Ringing

My Ringing Career

I've been ringing church bells since I was just nine years old, an age which is still considered to be young to start learning to ring. Consequently, I've had a long and varied ringing career that quite literally spans the centuries, so I've divided this page into more manageable chunks:

Each part contains links to all the other parts at the top of the page, as well to the part immediately following it at the end of the page. It should hopefully go without saying that the final part brings my ringing career right up to date, at the time of writing. Enjoy!
