Ladbroke is near to the Guide Dog breeding centre and several brood bitches have and one still does live in the village. The church was frequently visited by one of them, Fifi, who had 45 guide dog puppies before retiring!. Sadly she is no longer with us.


Our Building

We are open 10-4 daily.

Ladbroke church is Grade 1 listed and set in a conservation area with a thatched house next door. It is very photogenic viewed from the footpath in the adjacent field.

Music and Worship

We have 5 bells, they are rung most weeks and the last full peal was in December 2016 by a visiting team of "peal-baggers".

Our bell ringers would love others to join them. They ring for the family service , weddings etc.

Visiting ringers should contact the tower captain if they would like to come and ring the Ladbroke Bells.

Organ

With very few exceptions the 3rd Sunday in the month is a BCP service.
