The Walsgrave Society Change Ringers (WSCR) are a group of friends and ringers that get together every Monday evening at a lovely ring of six, followed by a pint at the nearby pub. It’s an easy commute from Warwick and Coventry universities.
Walsgrave Society Change Ringers practice at Walsgrave on Sowe – see map below (Coventry District) on Mondays 19:30-21:00 then on to the The Red Lion next door (Ansty Rd, Coventry, West Midlands CV2 2EY Tel: 024 7661 2168). Service ringing is by arrangement.
Other towers to visit around Coventry are:
Sunday morning service timings are such that there can be a circuit of Walsgrave, grab coffee in church after 0930 service at Stoke before ringing there and then on to the Cathedral.
The Coventry Guild website can provide details of Leamington and Kenilworth which have a reasonable amount of student housing for Warwick University.
