There are also two more ringing guilds operating in parts of Dorset, they are the Salisbury DG and the Winchester and Portsmouth DG

Despite its name the Association is non-territorial; it does operate mainly within the county of Dorset and adjoining areas but members live and ring wherever there are bells to be rung.
All members are Life Members.
The Association is represented on The Central Council of Church Bell Ringers and supports the Bradpole Ringing Centre.
It also has a bell restoration fund which is a registered charity. Charity number 294239.
