St Mary's has a small and friendly group of bellringers who practice on every Monday evening between 8 and 9 o'clock. The recently restored and augmented 6 bells in the tower are set for traditional English ringing (more details) and the regular ringer group at Buckden are becoming more and more ambitious in the methods they learn and eventually ring for Sunday Morning Service. Of course the bells are also rung for other occasions, most notably for weddings and many people comment on the familiar and pleasant sound of church bells.
St Mary's ringers are always looking for new ringers and if you want to come and see how it is done and maybe to learn, we would be pleased for you to visit the tower on a Monday evening and you will be made most welcome. We have the benefit of a good teacher at the moment and we can cater for all abilities - from complete novice to returnees. The only requirements are to be over 12 years of age (for insurance purposes) and a willingness to try something that is traditionally English.
