An Introduction to
The Charmborough Ring is ideal for presenting
to the public and for introducing newcomers to this physically and intellectually rewarding team activity.
The Charmborough Ring is a portable belfry with six bells that can be rung in the same way as those in churches and cathedrals throughout the country. The Ring is probably the easiest portable belfry in the world to ring due to its relatively large bells and wheels compared with other “mini-rings”.
Follow the links on the left for information about the Ring, and how it can be hired from The Charmborough Bell Trust, a registered charity
that administers its use.
