St Martin's, Brasted

The ringers and ringing

Sadly all tower bell ringing cancelled for the time being. If however you might like to come and join us when things are normal again, then please do get in touch now.

We currently have a band of about ten ringers and it is very rare for us not to have enough people to man the bells each Sunday — although we could always do with some more recruits. Our practice night is Friday from 7.45 to 9.30pm and visitors, ringers or not, are very welcome. We have an anti-clockwise circle of eight bells. On Sunday mornings we ring from 9.15am to 10.00am, and we normally attempt a quarter peal before an evensong. The Tower Captain is Catherine Lewis, who can be contacted on 01959 563767 or

We have our own website at It has information on learning to ring, but also it has some interesting history of Brasted bells and those who've rung them in the past.

Most of the current members of the Brasted band are members of The Kent County Association of Change Ringers.
