Bells and Bell Ringing at Hartington Church


After many years of planning and fund raising, in 2007, a new ring of 8 bells was installed in the belfry. At that time there were no experienced bell ringers remaining in the village. It had not been possible to ring the original 3 bells in full circle ringing for some 40 years, The Derbyshire Diocesan Association for Church Bell Ringers organised training and now we have a band of ringers all from Hartington.
