The WP Guild Library Catalogue of books 2007

Held in Winchester Cathedral ringing chamber. (Updated August 2007)

The catalogue lists books individually where we hold multiple copies, but only the two copies in best condition are listed. Books relating to special events (dedications, special services etc) are now held by year in the Archival section, although in the past they may have appeared in the book list. A catalogue of archival material held in Winchester Cathedral or in the Hampshire Record Office (the Guild collection has the reference 20M94) appears elsewhere on this site.

Members of the W&P may borrow books for a period of eight weeks. A number of Winchester Ringers are authorised to issue books, so the collection is normally available at or around the normal ringing times at the Cathedral. Otherwise, please contact the Hon Guild Librarian and Archivist.

Please make use of the Library. As you will see below, it contains a wide-ranging, interesting and useful collection.
