Bells and Bellringing in Birmingham

This website is about the ringing that takes place in central Birmingham, UK.

Here you will find pages of information about each of the four city centre towers - the bells, and the ringing that takes place there.

Birmingham has many suburban towers, most with active bands: they are affiliated to the local ringing association - the St Martin's Guild for the Diocese of Birmingham (which was established in 1755).  Find out more about the Guild from their website.

Students in Birmingham ring at Edgbaston Old Church during term time.  For more information go to the Birmingham University Society of Change Ringers (BUSCR) website.
