This is a place for:

  • Historical information about ringers and ringing
  • Research Projects
  • Suggestions, advice and best practice
  • Using database technology to get more out of ringing data

Much of the content here is copied from the CCCBR web site or its predecessor site.

What this site provides is a location that brings it all together.

This is not intended to show how clever we are. The intention is to be helpful. So if you see ways in which this can be made better, feel free to get in touch, especially if you would like to contribute.

The current point of contact is Chris Ridley, who is the History & Archive Workgroup leader.

Watch the "Latest" section at the foot of the page to see how this is going.
