Visiting Ringers

Wanborough welcomes visiting ringers, and because of its location just 1.8 miles from Junction 15 of the M4, it is a convenient tower for visiting ringers. Should you wish to visit us as part of an outing, quarter peal or peal attempt, please can you give at least 8 weeks notice. This is so your visit can be approved and advanced notice of ringing placed in our parish magazine.

Please note: Unfortunately, there are no public toilets in the village, but we do have 5 pubs, the oldest of which dates from 1720, and an Indian Restaurant at Foxhill on the outskirts of the village.

Peals and Quarter Peals

2 peal attempts a year are permitted, usually on Saturday mornings in February/ March and then in October/November. There are no peals booked for 2016 onwards, but please give at least 8 weeks notice so that details can be published in the parish magazine.
There are no restrictions on quarter peals, but please give 8 weeks notice.
We do not charge visiting ringers, but do ask for a donation, to cover wear and tear on the ropes, of £64 for each peal attempt payable with booking, and £16 for quarter peals.
Please contact Tony Pullan to make your arrangements.

Show Days in the future.

and tower tours are no longer permitted.
