Blockley, St Peter & St Paul

The Parish Church of St Peter & St Paul is in the middle of this pretty Cotswold village of Blockley. Parking is limited.

The ringing room is reached by climbing the 24 steps of a spiral staircase. The entrance to the staircase is inside the tower and entrance to the tower was through doors in the west face. The stone steps are very worn and are covered with wood. The room is quite big with a single large window. There is plenty of seating for those not ringing the 8 bells.

The Bells

On my first visit the tower had a ring of 8 bells with a tenor weighing 16-0-27 in F. Earlier in the 2019 the augmentation to 10 bells was completed.

Dove's Guide includes details of the bells at St Peter & St Paul. There is some additional information provided by The Gloucester & Bristol Diocesan Association of Church Bell Ringers.
