Taster Sessions at St Mary’s Church

St. Mary’s Church is the only Grade I listed building in Calne and stands on the site of an earlier Saxon Minster.
The 17th Century north transept tower houses St Mary’s eight bells, known as ‘a ring of 8.’ The oldest is the sanctus bell which is approximately 500 years old and is rung just before services. The treble and the 5th bells were cast in 1707.
The Bell-ringers meet every Friday evening and Sunday morning. Participants in this taster session will learn how a church bell works and have the opportunity to ring a bell with assistance and supervision.
Please note there are 70 steps to the bell tower.
