Guildford Diocese Guild of Church Bell Ringers Library

The Guild has an extensive Library, said to be the third largest collection of ringing books in the world. It includes complete runs of Bell News, Church Bells and The Ringing World (except the issues 1916-1921). There are also many books on bells, change-ringing, tower maintenance and legal matters.

Indeed, it is more than just a library: it also holds the Guild’s Archives and other historical material. Many books can be borrowed, although some can only be consulted on site.
