Tredington, St John the Baptist

The Parish Church of St John the Baptist [listing] is in middle of Tredington, a small village a couple of miles south of Tewkesbury on a side side between the A38 and the M5. The church is in a nice, well maintained churchyard. The tower is unusual in that it is timber framed an plonked on the roof. Inside there is no sign of the tower other than the bell ropes. I chose to park in a nearby car park at the village hall on the other side of Stoke Road. Parking on Stoke Road would be unwise.

Ringing takes place on the ground floor. As there is no tower per se there is plenty of space to ring the bells. There are several wooden pillars supporting the roof but the area in which ringing takes place is very open and light.

The Bells

The tower has a ring of 6 bells with a tenor weighing 7-2-7 in A. Dove's Guide includes details of the bells at St John the Baptist. There is some additional information provided by The Gloucester & Bristol Diocesan Association of Church Bell Ringers.
