Links to other Resources

These websites have been chosen so that locals, visitors, ringers or potential ringers may see the variety of resources available. It is by no means an exhaustive list but some sites will give a potential learner or new ringer a good introduction to the art of Ringing. Others give a quick link to websites with useful information for the more experienced, though for the more esoteric sites the Central Council site should be used.

All links open in a new browser window. Please come back to us when you've visited them!

Holy Trinity Hurstpierpoint Interior picture

Holy Trinity Church Hurstpierpoint

The church has the largest capacity of any public building in Hurstpierpoint. It was built in 1845 to hold more than a thousand people and replaced the ancient St. Lawrence Church which the Victorians thought was too small and old-fashioned for the modern era!

Dove's Guide for Church Bell Ringers

This is the online version of Dove's Guide for Church Bell Ringers, the definitive source for information about rings of bells since the first printed edition appeared in 1950. The site provides full-featured searching, links to mapping facilities to show the exact location of towers, satellite navigation data, and details of changes to entries as they occur. Its scope has been extended by the addition of data for individual bells as a step towards a prototype National Bell Register.

On-line Method Database

This database lives on the site and users can get to it through these pages. The database lists every method ever rung to date.

Visual Method Archive

Visual Method Archive

The Visual Method Archive allows you to search and view "blue lines" - a sort of equivalent to a bell ringer of sheet music. You can also use it to check if a method has been rung and named, and to edit place notations to try and create new methods.
