The Bath & Wells Diocesan Association of Change Ringers

site search by freefind advanced

Welcome to our website!

The B&WDACR was founded in 1890 and we are nationally the third largest territorial group in terms of membership, covering a wide geographical area stretching from Exmoor in the west to North Somerset and the outskirts of Bristol, encompassing the City of Bath in the east and the edge of Dorset to the south.

Our eleven branches are all active, despite the very rural and sparsely populated nature of some of them.

Visitors are warmly welcome and details of our practices and meetings can be found by date in the ‘What's on’ listing and on the Towers and Branches pages.

Please use our tower contacts if you would like to check local details or make specific arrangements such as for outings. Most towers ring for Sunday services, sometimes arranged on a rota basis with others nearby, and ringing at all levels is encouraged.

The Association continues to flourish with the goodwill, enthusiasm and support of its members in promoting the art of change ringing throughout the Diocese which in 2009 celebrated the 1100th anniversary of its foundation.
