Hereford Cathedral Bell Ringers

The Cathedral's tower houses a unique ring of 10 bells, the oldest of the bells being the 6th, which is thought to have been cast c1350. The heaviest bell, the tenor, weighs nearly 34 cwt and is about 500 years old. The ringing chamber has several posts and beams which obscure the view across the room adding to the difficulty of this challenging ring of bells. 

Ringing Times and Calendar


We ring every Sunday morning between 9am and 10am. We meet in the North transept just before 9am by the tower door.


We also have a practice evening on the last Saturday of every month at 6:30pm for 2 hours, but please check as this can be affected by events in the cathedral.


Visiting ringers are very welcome to join us. Please contact our secretary if you would like more information or would like to join us.
