Welcome to the homepage of the bell ringers of Ss. Peter & Paul, Scarning.

On this site you should find everything you need to know about who we are, what we do and when.


Tower Open Day – 10:00-14:00 tower visits, 14:00-16:00 ringing taster sessions

We will be opening the tower to the general public and fellow ringers on Saturday 28th July, as part of ‘Celebrating Open Churches’ (formerly Open Churches Week) (10:00-16:00). This is the day after Norfolk Day and we invite you to come along and find out more about this fascinating part of our Norfolk culture and heritage.

There will be guided visits to see our historic bells from 10:00 until 14:00 (there will be a modest charge to help continue maintenance of the bells), and a ringing taster session, with a qualified instructor, from 14:00 until 16:00. This is a rare opportunity to see parts of the bell tower that are not normally accessible to the public.

We are supporting the Ringing Remembers campaign to recruit 1400 new bell ringers in time for the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One in November. So, if you are intrigued by the possibility of taking up bell ringing, come along and find out more.

There will be lots to look at and do, including information about bell ringing, video presentations, leaflets to take away, a ‘guess the weight’ competition and children’s quiz.  Refreshments will be available throughout the day.

Please note that going up to the belfry involves uneven stairs and steep steps. Feel free to contact us at rookfarn@googlemail.com if you would like more information. Also, children under six years of age cannot go up the tower, and all under 18s must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult.
