The Branch web site contains up to date information about ringing in North Bucks. Much of the information formerly in this site can now be found there.

Web development - Jan 2021

A long needed review of table names in the dataase has prompted a complete check of the code behind this site. You probably won't see much difference, except in a few places where HTML5 coding has been introduced.

The Flash mp3 player in the tower and bell pages has been replaced with the HTML5 audio player..


For Little Horwood:

More detail from the Central Bucks towers that were formerly part of North Bucks are being included.

Tuning

A positive figure shows that the bell is sharp, a negative figure shows that it is flat. There are 100 cents between notes on the scale.
