SMLT Society of Change Ringers

St Mary-le-Tower Society of Change Ringers
Go to content

Ringing is non-existent or severely limited at the moment, and as  government advice changes we will adapt what is possible  to do.  At times you may possibly hear a reduced number of bells ringing, and at other times we may ring handbells instead, outside the church.  We regret that at this stage we are still unable to accommodate any visitors.

We support the work of the Friends of St Edmundsbury Cathedral.
You can read their newsletter here

We are the resident ringers at the Civic and Town church of St Mary-le-Tower in central Ipswich.  

There has been a ringing tradition here for over 300 years and certainly from 1896-1939 the St Mary-le-Tower society was one of the leading twelve-bell Companies in the land. Over 700 peals have been rung here, many of them for notable occasions.

We are very grateful to Colin Salter, who is currently researching the history of the SMLT Society.  You can read his document here
