Gransden Church Bells & Training Centre


Quarter Peals 

A quarter peal on six bells is a piece of ringing which has a minimum of 1260 changes. This number of changes is as it describes a quarter of a peal (see the Peals page). A change is produced by the bells ringing once in a set sequence. At Great Gransden a quarter peal takes about 45 minutes to ring but time can vary slightly according to the number of changes the number bells used and the speed of the ringing. The table below lists all the known quarter peals rung. Some longer pieces have also been rung which record the year date. These are still classed as quarter peals but are also known as date touches.

Quarter peals are rung for many reasons mainly for the enjoyment of ringing to consolidate hours of practice but often for local or national church or civic events or to mark births marriages or deaths and a myriad of other dedications. The conductor is one of the ringers taking part.

Details of all the date touches rung can be found here.

Details of all quarter peals rung at great Gransden can be found here:  1 to 100,   101 to 200
