Great Wilbraham Guild of Change Ringers

St Nicholas Church, Great Wilbraham, Church Street, Great Wilbraham, Cambridgeshire, CB21 5JP

The Great Wilbraham Guild of Change Ringers (GWGCR) was founded in 2005 in the Carpenter’s Arms, Great Wilbraham. The decision to establish the Guild came about following an interest in the village to bring the bells at St. Nicholas Parish Church back into use after a five year period of silence.

The GWGCR was founded for the benefit of both the village and the church communities. It was decided that GWGCR should be a not for profit, equal opportunity, community based organisation; open to everyone regardless of age, faith, religion, race, disability of sexual orientation. It made sense to establish St. Nicholas’ church tower as our headquarters owing to the convenient and regular access to a set of instruments.

There has been a church in Great Wilbraham since Saxon times, with parts of the present building dating from the 12th Century. Over the last 900 years, the building has been enlarged and altered as the needs of the village have changed. It has remained a focal point as a landmark and a place of continuous worship, baptisms, weddings and funerals.

The church is prominent in Church Street, a continuation of the High Street. Great Wilbraham is easily accessed from the A14 and A11. There is a mini roundabout leading to Angle End on the Westside, providing easy parking off Church Street. You can view a map of St Nicholas Church in Great Wilbraham.
