Would you like to come ringing? I'm going. It'll be great!

We have eight bells which were cast in 1741. If you're younger than the bells, we'd like you to come and learn how to help us ring them.

I learned to ring when I was fourteen and it has been my principal leisure time interest ever since. I have several ringing friends who learned as adults. We enjoy meeting each other and we enjoy ringing the changes as physical and mental exercise and as an ancient skill which has been practised in England since the 1630's. Like those of churches all across the country, our bells ring out at times of personal, religious and national celebration. Our ringing is part of our Christian worship, part of our contribution to the life of our nation and, for many couples who were married in Poulton, it was part of what we hope will continue to be your long and happy marriage.
