St Andrew's, Wanborough
Welcome to the Wanborough Pages
of the Wanborough & Liddington Ringers web site
Wanborough and Liddington bells have not been rung normally since March 2020. Apart from the occasional ringing during lockdown of 3 or 4 bells by family bubbles for Remembrance, Christmas and Easter, the only ringing has been occasional single bells for service and funerals.

The new table for the ringing chamber.
Made by Malcolm Barnes using the inscription bands from the pre 1949 peal of bells. The bands lived for 70 years under the pulpit in church, but after strengthening the ringing chamber floor, they now have a new home.
