My Ringing Career

I've had a long and varied ringing career that quite literally spans the centuries, so I've divided this page into more manageable chunks. It should hopefully go without saying that the final part brings my ringing career right up to date as of the time of writing. Enjoy!

N.B. It won't be hard to spot that "the time of writing" was more than eleven years ago. I do have copious notes ready to be assembled into more parts to bring this page to its conclusion – now that I've retired from ringing – and having finally completed the general overhaul of my website (which itself was long overdue), writing and publishing those final parts has floated much closer to the top of my 'to-do' list.
