The Ringers' Handbook
The Ringers' Handbook - Written by ES & M Powell in 1932, this is still the best book for beginners. The book leads the new ringer from how to stand and hold the rope, through the basic principles of change ringing and on to Grandsire, Plain Bob, Stedman and Kent.
The book assumes no previous knowledge. Technical terms are clearly explained and the text is precise and unambiguous. The 134-page book is a pocket sized paperback with a durable film laminated cover.

Pam Copson's books
The late Pam Copson wrote three excellent books for new bellringers. Her pen and ink illustrations and explanations are a perfect 'add-on' to The Ringer's Handbook.
For over twenty years, Marske bellringer Peter Sotheran produced the booklets for her in his family printing business. During her illness, Peter & Sue Sotheran distributed the booklets on her behalf. The three titles are now available exclusively from Ted Copson. Please visit his web site for details and current prices.
