History Of The Bells

On the old A429 road from Warwick to Cirencester and beyond, Barford is a pleasant village. St Peter's church is just off this road - into the village proper at a mini roundabout near the Joseph Arch pub. Look for the signs off the recently built Barford Bypass.

One of the newer rings of 6 in the Diocese, these were installed in 1994 during the incumbency of a ringing vicar, the late Gordon Benfield, being an augmentation from a ringable 3. These had been rehung by Taylors in 1909. At this point the bells were hung in a lowside frame, quarter turned and the canons were removed. The third was originally the treble of the ring of 3 at Atherstone on Stour (q.v.). It retains its canons.

The entrance is from inside the church and limited on-street parking is available near to the church
