Abstract

This paper discusses the development of change ringing in eastern Breconshire before the start of the First World War in 19 14, with special reference to peal ringing at Glasbury. Since the men who rang peals there, prior to that war, came from other towers as well as from Glasbury, brief mention is made of ringing at those towers and of members of those towers who rang peals at Glasbury. The towers discussed include Talgarth, Bronllys, Brecon, Llanelli (named Llanelly on Ordnance Survey maps) and Builth Wells, which were in the Diocese of St David's at that time, and centres in Herefordshire which were in the Diocese of Hereford. Attention is also paid to the role of the Hereford Diocesan Guild of Bellringers and of the peripatetic instructors employed by that Guild. An excellent introduction toringing is provided by R. J. Johnston's Bell-Ringing; the English Art of Change-Ringing (Viking, 1986), while the web-site of the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers (www.cccbr.org.uk) is also informative.
