The directory describes all the known mini-rings (except where the owner has opted out). It includes both portable and non-portable rings, rings no longer in existence and 'rings' of dumb-bells.
For more information about any of them either follow the associated link or e-mail me.
A new ring of six SaxSims has been installed in the ringing chamber at Liverpool Cathedral.
A new ring of six Higby bells is under construction at Harleston, Norfolk. Also listed for the first time is the former ring of eight by the same owner, which was in situ at West Malling, Kent in the late 1960s.
The Cygnet Ring, Austalia is effectively in storage and so is now listed as such.
Rings of three or more bells are included. The number of bells in the diatonic ring is shown together with the number of semitones (in parenthesis), where applicable.
Roughly speaking, the criteria for inclusion are either that the ring is in private ownership with a tenor weight of around 2.5 cwt or less, or that the ring is in public ownership with a tenor weight of around 1 cwt or less.
All dumb-bell rings are included regardless of 'weight'.

The TowerBase identifier (TB Id) assists with looking up the correct mini-ring in TowerBase or Felstead.
Links are provided between a ring and its previous instance (if any) within this directory.
Various rings that are still at the planning stage are not listed, and neither are scale models.
Thanks to everyone who has helped me to keep this directory up-to-date. Tim Jackson collates all the information and updates each page so must take all the credit for what has now become a comprehensive resource. Please e-mail me with any further additions or corrections.
