This bell ringing website, identifies with the Benefice location areas & is consequently named after two local rivers, The Avon plus The Welland, both serving as county & parish boundaries with neighbouring Leicestershire.
(The source of the Avon rises at Naseby, flowing north-west around the parish of Welford, onto Stanford on Avon, Lilbourne, Rugby, Stratford on Avon, meeting the river Severn at Tewksbury, whilst the Welland rises within the parish boundaries of Sibbertoft, flowing past Marston Trussell to Market Harborough then north-eastwards to The Wash).
The site already displays :-
- Benefice bellringing activities of Welford, Sibbertoft & Marston Trussell.
- Local & Guild bellringing events.
and will eventually display :-
- Local area topology notes.
- Brief histories.
- Local interests.
