Winsford Bellringing

Tower Contact: Brenda Staples, Moonraker’s Cottage, Winsford.  01643 851396


Winsford is blessed with having six lovely sounding bells which used to ring out over the village on Wednesday practice nights and for Sunday services. Sadly, as time has passed, the number of ringers has fallen and we are now a very small band. We also have no-one to train us so, thanks to the kindness of Sue Atkins and her team at Exford. We go there to practice on Tuesday evenings, from 7.30 – 9pm. There are also training days at Minehead. (Ten bells!)

Winsford now has a team of six ringers (Richmond Harding and Fred Hayes were unable to attend on Wednesday so sadly are not in this photograph.




We are very grateful to Sue Atkins and Mike Ellicott who instruct and without the help of them and other ringers, we would not be able to ring for services and weddings. We would very much like to welcome new ringers to Winsford Tower and anyone interested can contact me, Brenda Staples, at Moonraker’s Cottage, Winsford.
