Due to renovations to the building, access to the bell-tower is currently limited to essential maintenance only. Bell-ringing has been suspended until further notice and we are not currently taking bookings. The following information has been retained for reference only:
20-21 incorporates the former St John’s Church and has a ring of eight bells that are available for qualified bell-ringing groups to hire.
If you would like to ring the bells at 20-21, please contact the centre using our online form to express your interest and we will send you an information pack and application form.
If you are interested in finding out more about bell ringing in the local area you can get in touch with the West Lindsey Branch of The Lincoln Diocesan Guild of Church Bell Ringers.
