The Gloucester & Bristol Diocesan Association of Church Bell Ringers

Cirencester branch covers towers in the valleys of the rivers which drain east off the Cotswolds. North is the Windrush, forming the boundary with the North Cotswold branch. South of this is the Coln and then the Churn, which passes through Cirencester before meeting the infant Thames and forming the southern boundary with Swindon branch. The branch also has boundaries with Chippenham, Stroud and Cheltenham branches. East is the Oxford Diocesan Guild.

The tower of St John the Baptist, Cirencester (pictured) dominates the town. Its chief claim to fame is perhaps being the oldest twelve and the site of the first peal on twelve rung outside of London.
