Date: Saturday 7th February
Time: 10:00am - 12:30pm
Venue: Bathwick
Run By: David Huxford and Molly Waterson


A morning course to give you a really intensive chance to practice raising and lowering. We will aim to concentrate on raising and lowering in peal; giving you plenty of opportunity to raise and lower bells and developing your skills so that you can go back to your home towers and spread the word!


The content of this course has not yet been finalised so it may be possible to tailor it to the needs of those that sign up. The course is currently targeted at raising and lowering in peal so it is expected that you are able to confidently raise and lower a bell on your own.

It is envisaged that the session will take the following form:

  • Classroom session with Tea/Coffee and video showing raising and lowering (this is subject to resources being available)
  • Checking your technique of raising and lowering in the tower
  • Chiming in rounds (many people fail to raise in peal because they fail to get the chiming right at the start)
  • Raising and lowering in peal
  • The 'Miss one and Catch' at the end.

Please note that it may be necessary to increase the duration of the course from the suggested 2 hours.
