Welcome to the Norwilbeck Bellchime website 

The fascination with their beloved breed started back in the mid eighties. Sandra with a Sundawn bitch from the late Margaret Maskell and Greg with a bitch from the world famous Marbelton Kennel owned by the late Mary & John Hambleton. Greg’s affix Bellchime was granted back in 1986 and Sandra’s Norwilbeck in 1991. Today they campaign under the joint affix Norwilbeck Bellchime from which they have had considerable success, making up nine UK Champions over the last twelve years.

For those of you who don’t know them, their small kennel is based in the North West of England, a stone’s throw away from the Irish Sea and close to the famous Blackpool Tower. They have achieved quite a lot considering they are a relatively small kennel, the highlight being back in 2008 when they won both Best of Breed at CRUFTS and the British Boxer Club’s CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS trophy in the same year with CH Bellchime Special Edition (Dee). They are reliably informed few kennels have managed to achieve this double so both Sandra and Greg are extremely honoured to have repeated this achievement for a second time in 2016 with CH Panabolo Specially for Norwilbeck Bellchime (Ella).  What makes it all the more special for them is that both are sired by the irreplaceable CH Norwilbeck Special Blend and amazingly Dee was from one of Ben’s first litters with Ella being from his last — the end of an era you might say.

In 2014 they won both the Mancunian B.C. Pup of the Year and the Cotswold B.C. Dog of the Year with Ella who also managed to repeat her Cotswold Dog of the Year win in 2016. This made a bit of Boxer history as no Boxer had achieved the double in the same year and no bitch had won the prestigious Dog of the Year trophy twice.
