The Gloucester & Bristol Diocesan Association of Church Bell Ringers

Cheltenham branch covers the spa town, its immediate environs and the area to the north up to the boundary with the Worcestershire Association. To the east is the North Cotswold and Cirencester branches and south the Gloucester branch. The western boundary, marked approximately by the M5, is with the Tewkesbury branch.

The branch boasts the lightest ring installed in a church at St Christopher, Warden Hill on the outskirts of the town. The parish church in the centre of the town can be difficult to find, being hemmed in by office buildings. No such problem afflicts the tower of St Peter, Winchcombe (pictured) to the north.
