St. Mary's Church in Maulden has a ring of eight bells (augmented from six in 1950), the heaviest of which weighs 10 cwt.
The bells are occasionally rung for the Sunday morning service and usually for weddings and special occasions throughout the year. The ringers practise on Wednesday evenings.
Anyone over the age of 11 years can learn to ring; you do not have to be particularly strong or mathematically minded. There are about 40,000 bell ringers in the UK so this activity is a great way of making new friends and visiting new places.
If you are already a ringer or if you would like to find out more about the art of church bell ringing, do come along on a Wednesday evening. For more information or to confirm the practice time, please contact Dean De-Matteis to email him click here.
We look forward to meeting you!
