Church tower bell ringing

Ringing Bells

The timeless sound of English church bells helps provide the perfect backdrop for your special occasion.

The ringing of church bells is one of those quintessentially British sounds that we often take for granted. The unique English style of ringing evolved over 400 years ago, and has become part of our heritage.

All three church towers in The Parish of Three Saints have six bells, though their tone and characteristics are very different.

  • St Michael’s bells at Brent Knoll are heavy and majestic (tenor 21cwt) and ringers come from all over the country to ring them.
  • St Mary’s at East Brent are lighter (tenor 16cwt) and can be rung more quickly which makes them sound bright.
  • St Christopher’s at Lympsham are lighter still (tenor 11cwt) and produce a higher pitched merry sound.

You are welcome to visit us during our normal Tuesday practice between 7.30 and 9.00pm. For more information please contact our Tower Captain:
