A Conversation for Campanology - the Art of Bell Ringing
tenorbell Started conversation Jan 18, 2011
The image of swinging on a rope bears no relation to how bellringing is actually done. There is a much better animated image of a bell and ringer available on this site: http://fortran.orpheusweb.co.uk/Bells/software/change.htm

Ooh, that is good! I remember I spend quite a while looking for a decent .gif and didn't find anything way back when I updated this article.
Many thanks for your contribution!
I gather from your name that you're a ringer too? I'm sadly laped these days as I don't have a local tower.

Yes, I am. You might like to look at the website of my home tower, which has lots of info for non-ringers as well as ringers: http://allsaintswokinghambells.org.uk/

It looks like you have a solid band there.
My 'home' tower (I haven't lived there since I left home, but it's where I learnt to ring) is here: http://www.odg.org.uk/history/onb/blewbury.html
I'm hoping to move to this village and join their band: http://www.sacbr.org.uk/Baschurch/Baschurch.htm
It was interesting trying to write this article without the benefit of diagrams (it's something that the site doesn't support at the moment). It's not a problem for most articles, but every now and then you wish you could just *show* someone ho it works.
