As a (retired) professional database developer I have written an Access database which produces bell-ringing diagrams and these are available for free and unrestricted download. Please help yourselves to any which will help you or your Ringers to progress with their ringing skills. What I recommend is that you print the diagrams using a colour printer and then draw in the Treble and one other bell using a suitably coloured marker pen; then laminate the pages for your Tower's training book.

You are welcome to contact me by email - please manually remove the extra 'z' in the email address. My main page is here.

Dove's Guide contains details of other towers - find out where you can ring whilst you are away from home.

Bellboard records all Quarter Peal, Peal and other ringing successes.

< I also make the 'Bell Ringing Pinboard' - useful as a training aid for you or another ringer, to learn the line for a new method. Just restring the coloured thread on the pins to show the work for each bell. 24 inches long and 5 inches wide.
