A number of people in St Tudy have expressed an interest in learning about bell ringing, so we thought we would invite you, and any friends you know of who are interested, to come along to our Thursday Practice Evening from 7:00 to 8:30 pm to talk to us. 

Then, if you want to take it further, we will work out the best way forward for you.  

If you can’t make Thursday evenings, please let us know and we will see what we can do for you.

We would particularly like to invite young people to think about learning to ring.  Maybe a group of friends would be interested in learning together? 



St Tudy Ringers visit to Altarnun Saturday 10th February 2018

Eight St Tudy Ringers visited Altarnun Church to ring the bells and afterwards have lunch in th nearby Rising Sun inn.

This was the first time the present Ringers had rung eight bells, and we were thankful for the help and advice provided by the two Altarnun Ringers present.




St Tudy Ringers 'on tour' at St Kew 28th October 2017

Seven St Tudy Ringers started again the long standing practice of visiting other towers to ring their bells with a trip to St Kew.

Many thanks to Ken for the warm welcome, and help with our ringing.

After ringing, we had an excellent lunch in the St Kew Inn next door to the church.

No.6  Our Tenor Bell



The bells at Michaelstow are not ringable, but are chimed before services using an Ellacombe Chiming Apparatus.

This apparatus allows a single person at ground level to chime all six bells by pulling on ropes which are attached to hammers in the belfry.  The hammers strike the stationary bells.


This is the Ellacombe Chiming Aparatus at St Breward for information only
