Welcome to the Motcombe Church Bell Ringers presence on the internet!
Our Bells are situated in St Mary's Church located in the beautiful village of Motcombe, North Dorset.

You Are Here! What next?


People of the web please be aware that the Motcombe Ringer's are alive and ringing and can now be found at: ENJOY!


We are an active lot organising outings and functions throughout the year. We encourage ringing of all standards from methods to call-changes and ringers of all standards and inclination are very welcome. Our Guild is currently undertaking active recruitment of especially the younger kind. If you are ever in the area please feel free to pop in on a practice night, all our towers provide the warmest of welcomes even in our colder months!



Although this site is initially aimed at existing members, providing up-to-date information for all, we hope that non ringers will browse this site and decide to give it a go with us. By contacting the webmaster, details at the bottom, you can make the first step into the ringing world without having to face a band of ringers who are quite possibly strangers, before deciding it is not for you. Please feel free to browse the rest of this site. There are numerous photographs of our Church and ourselves. The smiles may be forced but I assure you a good time is had by all!

This tower is affiliated to the Salisbury Diocesan Guild of Ringers. Find out where our towers is and details of our bells at the SDGR web site.
