Bells and Bellringing

Campanology, the art of ringing church bells, is practiced throughout the Lambfold benefice. All five of our churches have bells but unfortunately Maidford’s and Adstone’s are only hung for chiming.

Blakesley and Farthingstone have 'young teams' of bellringers, who have starting ringing to mark the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalger in 2005, after a break of nearly a whole generation. Both Towers need some major work doing to them to bring them up to a good standard, but that does not stop the faithful bands that have been formed.
The bells in Litchborough are in excellent condition with a long established team

Practice Times vary in time and place around the benefice but are generally at the following times in one of the churches.

Monday Morning at 10:30am

Wednesday Evening at 7:30pm

Saturday Morning 9:15am.
