Change-ringing is a peculiarly English art. The Atlas of Bells
The book is in three parts: 1. Introductory chapters. The history of the art of campanology in Britain and its colonies, and the geographical distribution of towers with ringable bells are covered. The restriction of change-ringing to the English-speaking world, and the relationship of bell-ringing to church architecture are discussed, and this section also introduces the principles of change-ringing. 2. The Atlas. County maps showing the distribution of all towers with four or more ringable bells in each county of England as well as in Scotland, Wales, Ireland and the rest of the world. Each map is accompanied by text giving details and points of local interest. 3. Gazetteer. This gives county-by-county grid references to all churches shown on the maps, listed by dedication. The book is illustrated by photographs and line drawings.
