Rayleigh Company of Change Ringers
Welcome to our bell ringing website
It is quite remarkable that if a ringer from the 17th century came into a church tower today he would have no difficulty recognising how we ring the bells and the way we ring on them.
At Rayleigh we have 8 excellent bells with the tenor weighing in at a little over 16cwt. We ring regularly on a Tuesday evening for Practice and twice on a Sunday and ring a variation of methods from doubles to basic Surprise Major and also some call changes.
We have ringers at various levels and we are a well visited tower on a practice night, often with a little bit of help we can ring Surprise Major.
The church is lucky enough to have a large free car park and a public car park directly opposite, which is free after 7pm (and all day Sundays) and as little as 50p for an hour at other times.
This website is aimed as resource for our ringers and also for the public interested in coming to learn, visit or simply just want some more information.
