St Mary le Ghyll, Barnoldswick

Church bells from St Mary le Ghyll, Barnoldswick.

This week's Bells on Sunday comes from St Mary le Ghyll Church in Barnoldswick, Lancashire. Founded in 1157 by monks from Kirkstall Abbey, the tower was added in 1524, but it wasn't until 1723 that the community was able to hang three bells cast by Abraham Rudhall of Gloucester. Last century the bells fell into disuse but in 2010, sufficient funds were raised to augment them to a peal of six. So we hear them now ringing Barnoldswick Treble Bob Minor.
