The Gloucester & Bristol Diocesan Association of Church Bell Ringers

Bristol branch covers the centre of the city and its southern and western suburbs, bordering the Bristol Channel and Bath and Wells DA. To the north lies the Bristol Rural branch. There are rings from five to twelve bells available although not all are rung regularly. Although the Cathedral occupies a central site on College Green perhaps the most visually impressive tower is that of St Mary, Redcliffe (pictured) situated near to Brunel's Temple Meads railway station.

Note: The city boasts an unusually high concentration of towers and is thus extremely popular with outings. In order to ensure that this is not to the detriment of the local inhabitants the branch operates a co-ordination scheme. Prospective outing arrangers are advised to contact the city tours organiser directly via email or via the branch contact before attempting to organise anything.
