Walks. Ring and Ramble. Long Walks    

The tower bell ringers enjoy a Ring and Ramble each year.

This is usually fairly local and of about 6 miles distance, which is fine for what is usually a November walk with a couple of towers to ring at enroute and still leave enough time to enjoy a meal.

A report of the latest Ring and Ramble can be accessed from the Activities page.

A Long walk usually takes place each year. This is a full day walk, without ringing, of 20 or more miles.

A report of the latest Long Walk can be accessed from the Activities page.
