Welcome to the Bicester Branch website!

Bellringers of the Bicester Branch ring the church bells in Bicester and the surrounding villages for church services and special occasions. Bellringing (or Campanology) is a skill which can be learnt in a few hours, but takes months or years to become a master. Anyone who is physically fit, aged 8 to 80 can be a bellringer. Bellringing is a team effort, usually involving 6 or 8 people at a time and as such bellringing is a social hobby enjoyed by around a hundred people in the Bicester area, and by thousands throughout the country. Furthermore, ringers from other areas are always welcome to visit and join in ringing our bells.
