We’d like to offer a warm welcome to anyone interested in bellringing – whether you are just curious about how bells are rung, want to learn to ring, or are already a ringer and want to visit.
Ringing is open to all – there’s no obligation to attend church. Some of the band do; most don’t.
If you’d like some information about what bellringing is, and what it involves, click here.
NB: There is building work underway at All Saints, Ilkley until Easter 2019, But we are still running our Practice Nights & Learner’s Nights. BUT we regrettably cannot accommodate visiting bands until the work is finished.
Practice Night details are here and here’s some important background information…….
THE ESSENTIAL DETAILS:
- an 8-bell tower with an 18cwt tenor at All Saints, Ilkley and a 6 bell tower with an 10cwt tenor at St Peters, Addingham,
- an enthusiastic band of ringers,
- noteworthy history,
- a warm welcome for visitors…..and
- several good pubs close by if people get thirsty – which about half the band does.
For those interested in clocks, the Ilkley one is a Potts.
