The 2018 ringing trip take place as usual on the early May Bank Holiday weekend which will be Friday 4th May until Monday 7th May. This year we will be based at Moor Farm Stable Cottages. These are mostly situated on a working farm in the village of Foxley, just off the A1067 about ten miles south east of Fakenham. It's a little different this year in that two of the larger cottages are not on the farm but five minutes walk away in the village, near the church. Accommodation has been booked for everyone who requested it and we have booked most (but not all) of their cottages.

The trip will have its normal format again this year with arrival at the accommodation after 2:00pm on the Friday. On Saturday there will be three towers in the morning followed by the pre booked Saturday lunch at The Railway in Wymondham, a few minutes drive from the Abbey. Please be sure to make your selections from their menu before 25th April. There will be ringing at a further three towers in the afternoon, with a tea break after Ketteringham at The Worlds End pub in Mulbarton.

On Sunday morning we will ring at the church in Foxley village, and this will not be an early start. Ringing at Fakenham will follow that after their service. There is free time in the afternoon and there are plenty of things to do in the area. You can find tourist information in the laundry room at the farm, marked on Moor Farm map 2. If the weather is good Foxley Wood will be worth a visit. No dogs allowed though. In the late afternoon we will ring at Dereham.

We need to leave the accommodation by 10:00am on Monday and then we will visit two towers followed by a lunch break. There is no arrangement for lunch but there are two pubs in North Elmham. There is also a tea room at the Post Office and a shop in the village. The trip will end with ringing on the light ten at Gressenhall in the early afternoon.

Please use the links to the right to access the detailed information for the trip. As this is the first time we've been to Moor Farm it will be a good idea to read the accommodation details and also print out the two site maps as it will be difficult to find your accommodation otherwise, especially if you arrive after dark. Only very basic information is provided in the directions link as nobody needs more detail these days, however there is information on parking and access to some of the churches which you will find useful, particularly for Honingham and Ketteringham. Town maps are included too.
