The Little Purple Ringing Book

A trusty pocket guide packed with details of hundreds of methods, ranging in difficulty from Reverse Canterbury Doubles to Stedman Triples, on four to ten bells. With diagrams and explanations, it will tell you how to ring these methods and what to look out for, what is unusual about them and how their calls work.

It will provide you with method ideas, teach you to call quarter peals, help you gain confidence on eight and ten bells, and guide you towards ringing simple surprise minor – progressing from the ‘blue zone’ to the ‘red zone’. Read our launch article or Simon Gay’s review to find out more.
