Oxford Country Meeting 2022

9th July 2022

The 2022 Country Meeting will be held in Oxford on Saturday 9th July, following the format of previous country meetings.


There will be peals at local towers on the Thursday and Friday. Please contact the Junior Steward (junior.steward@ascy.org.uk) if you wish to be included in peals.

The pub for gathering on the Thursday and Friday evenings will be the Royal Blenheim.

General ringing on Saturday morning will be at a number of city centre towers:

10:30-11:30 Merton College
14:00-15:00 Magdalen College
15:30-17:00 Christ Church

Sunday ringing will be announced at the business meeting.


The meeting will be at 11:45 in the Chapter House at Christ Church. (We will try and get permission to use the Meadow Gate at Christ Church which would give us a shortcut from Merton).
