In called changes, there are 2 ways of calling them -

1. Calling Up; 2. Calling Down.

Calling Up

Calling up is when the bell is called up and over the next bell in the sequence. Here is an example: 


- 1 2 3 4 5 6 


- 1 3 2 4 5 6 (2 to 3) 

Bell 2 is called up and over the 3 into 3rd's place. 


- 1 3 2 5 4 6 (4 to 5) 

Bell 4 is called up and over the 5 into 5th's place. 


- 1 3 5 2 4 6 (2 to 5) (Queens) 

Bell 2 is called up and over the 5 calling the bells into 'Queens' 

Calling Down

Calling down is when the bell is called down and under the previous bell in the sequence. Here is an example: 


- 1 2 3 4 5 6 


- 1 3 2 4 5 6 (3 to Treble) or (3 follow Treble) 

Bell 3 has been called down under the 2 to follow the Treble and 'pushed' the 2 into 3rd's place. 


- 1 3 2 5 4 6 (5 to 2) or (5 follow 2) 

Bell 5 has been called down under the 4 to follow the 2 and 'pushed' the 4 into 5th's place. 


- 1 3 5 2 4 6 (5 to 3) or (5 follow 3) 

Bell 5 has been called down under the 2 to follow the 3 and 'pushed' the 2 into 4th's place and into 'Queens'.

In Devon (and other places) they do not ring methods, but ring just called changes. There are several call change competitions each year and ring a variety of changes to fit the required amount for the competition.

Some towers do ring basic methods but a majority of towers only do call changes.


There is also some extra vocabulary that is used. They are: 

Devonshire ringers do have a series of call-changes that they call a 'method' called Devon Call Changes.

Called Changes is a mathematical sequence where tuned bells are used to play sequences. The sequences can be made on any bells and some have special names - some are even made by ringers for their tower.

They are called by a conductor who controls the ringing. 

Here are some of the well-known ones:
