There has been no history of regular ringing at Liddington since the old peal of 5 bells were declared unringable in 1948 until the new peal of six bells were installed in 2016.
The sound of the new ring of church bells in the village will have been very strange for most of the community and the amount of ringing has been sensitively limited.
However, Liddington bells are available to visiting bands of ringers:
- Outings - Visitors welcome, but please avoid Sundays
- Quarter Peals - Requests from tower/branch bands to ring quarter peals are most welcome.
- Peals - Liddington bells are not available for peals.
The first peal on the bells has been successfully rung, and in the months to come, any feedback / comments / complaints will be taken into consideration and these will be discussed with the vicar and PCC when agreeing on a future peal policy.
There have been many requests for the bells for peals, but when the peal policy is agreed, priority will be given to local ringers and those ringers and towers who have supported and contributed to the Liddington Bells Project.
The bells are not available for peals to visiting bands of ringers but when they do become available, the tower web site will be amended to reflect this.
