Local Towers

This is a list of towers with bells hung for change ringing that are within a few miles of Ecclesfield.  Click on the underlined links to see the tower or church web site (this will open in a new window).  Click on the photo link  to see a photo of the church (this will open in a new window).

We have also included a list of towers with bells that are not hung for change ringing (can't be rung full circle) but can be chimed, these are marked (chiming only).

Just for interest, at the bottom of the page is a list of some single bells that we have noticed in the area.
