Can I Learn to Ring Church Bells?
The first question many people ask is the obvious one, "Can I become a ringer?". The answer is almost always, "Yes". With 5,000 towers all over the world and over 40,000 bell ringers in the UK, there are plenty of opportunities to ring bells.
Bells are rung by such a wide variety of people that is would be impossible give the characteristics of a 'normal' bell ringer. Bell ringing is open to everyone.
Ringers tend to be over the age of about 10 or 11, but only so that they are tall and strong enough and able to take instructions. This means everyone is welcome to try their hand. For those not quite old enough some places offer handbell ringing too.
