  • To provide an opportunity to learn methods really well before taking a rope to ring them.
  • To provide a quick method reference for those pub conversations.
  • To make the software available on mobile platforms, such as mobile phones as wells as Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs).
  • To raise money for St. Mark's Bell Fund. Proceeds will initially contribute towards remaining funds required for the restoration appeal. Following the restoration, funds will be put towards maintenance of the bells in general.

Simulate ringing a method whilst waiting for your turn to ring. Then grap your rope and ring it better than anyone had expected! 'Methods to go'. Whip out your phone loaded with over 16,000 methods wherever you are. Test your memory recall on the train, or during a boring meeting on your PDA.


It has been suggested that a great way to learn a method other than writing out lines on paper is to use a computer program (see Adobe Acrobat Document "Learning Methods"). The reasons for this are:

Until now, not even affordable software has really filled this need. Abel is excellent for handbell ringers where the relative timing of two bells against the others is essential for learning. The hope is this software provides an easier user interface for tower bell ringers to use. Where only one bell has to be guided through the changes, precise timing relative to the other bells is not important to prove the blue line has been correctly remembered, or the calls correctly understood. Now you can be doing your last minute method revision whilst you are waiting for the last ringer to arrive for your quarter peal or peal.

The mobile version of this software is shareware, so you can 'try before you buy'. If you would like a quick way to experience how the software works, a free on-line version is provided.
