St Dunstan’s is one of the five churches in the City to have a ringing peal of bells but it is the only one in the Benefice where the bells can be properly rung by a band of ringers.  The bells are known as, 'A ring of six bells', the oldest of which dates back to 1325.  The biggest (called the 'Tenor') weighs 14 cwt, which is approximately 711 kg.

The team of ringers are proud of the fact that they have kept the bells ringing for Sunday services, almost without interruption, over several generations.  Whilst the team tries to keep the standard of ringing high, they are a friendly crowd.  Practice is on Fridays from 19.30 hrs and members of the congregation are welcome to watch the ringing.

The ringers are delighted to teach people the fascinating art of English bell ringing.  Please take this as a warm invitation to come up and see us.
