jnlThis “blog” is an online resource to support the bell ringing books published by my father, John Longridge, and later by me (Tom Longridge). There are various titles available; they include collections of method lines, compositions and ringing guides. The books were originally published in the 1980’s/90’s by Dad when he owned a printing and publishing company. Sadly he passed away in 2005 and I have taken over the publications.

From 2014 onwards, all profits made from the sale of the books are being donated to Cancer Research in the hope that one day we’ll beat the disease that robbed us of him. You can see more about the money raised so far – and even make a donation yourself at:


If you already own any of the books, please use the Corrections & Omissions page to view/report any errors. I would also welcome any comments/feedback using the Comment facility throughout the site.
