Good bellhandling is an essential part of our excercise. In order to assist with this I have posted some youtube links in the R&E section (not sure that is the bast place yet) that show examples of good bell handling. The article is below.


Bell Handling

A vital part of learning to ring is having good bell handling skills. This will enable you as a learner to progress on to other aspects of ringing. It is a core foundational skill of the excercise. These early skills learned form the foundations on which the later skills are built. The difficulty for the new learner is knowning what 'Good' actually looks like. Below are some video clips of 'Very Good' bell handling. Please take a look at these to ensure your bell handling and style matches up to this. If you feel you need more help or tuition please make contact with a member of the Recruitment & Education team using the email This email address is being protected from spambots.
