Ringing at Gunby

The territory covered by the Guild is the Anglican Diocese of Lincoln, comprising the whole of Lincolnshire as it was before the 1974 boundary revision. Most of the county's 600 fine churches are mediæval, and the jewel in Lincolnshire's crown is undoubtedly Lincoln Cathedral.

About 270 of our churches have bells hung for full-circle ringing, and there has been a great deal of re-hanging and augmentation in recent years. Contact information and other details can be found in the Towers Directory.

If you would like to learn more about bell ringing, you may wish to look at this explanatory web page. New recruits, of whatever age, are always welcome. Contact your nearest tower.

There is a great deal of enthusiasm and goodwill amongst bell ringers in Lincolnshire, and the health of the Guild is reflected in the number and complexity of peals and quarter peals both in the tower and on handbells.

In addition to the usual tower and branch practices, as will be seen in the Ringing Diary there are a number of special practices and training sessions to enable those who wish to do so to progress in the Art.
