The directory describes all the known mini-rings (except where the owner has opted out). It includes both portable and non-portable rings, rings no longer in existence and 'rings' of dumb-bells.
For more information about any of them either follow the associated link or e-mail me.
The bells from the Fenland Campanile, Little Abington are now at Easebourne, Sussex and form the only ring on this listing hung using the Ambrosiano System.
Installation of the Bellflowermews at Aylsham, Norfolk is complete, its fifth recorded home.
Transfer of the Bell Meadow Peal from Warnham to Broadbridge Heath is nearing completion. It is anticipated that the bells will be ringable by the time of our next update.
The Battam Six, Starston has been augmented from six to ten bells by the addition of a tenor and three trebles and renamed accordingly.
Rings of three or more bells are included. The number of bells in the diatonic ring is shown together with the number of semitones (in parenthesis), where applicable.
Roughly speaking, the criteria for inclusion are either that the ring is in private ownership with a tenor weight of around 2.5 cwt or less, or that the ring is in public ownership with a tenor weight of around 1 cwt or less.
All dumb-bell rings are included regardless of 'weight'. The total number of 'bells' in the 'ring' is given in parenthesis where this is greater than the number of dumb-bells.

The TowerBase identifier (TB Id) assists with looking up the correct mini-ring in TowerBase or Felstead.
Links are provided between a ring and any previous instance within this directory.
Various rings that are still at the planning stage are not listed, and neither are scale models.
Thanks to everyone who has helped me to keep this directory up-to-date. Tim Jackson collates all the information and updates each page so must take all the credit for what has now become a comprehensive resource. Please e-mail me with any further additions or corrections.
