St Mary and St Benedict, Buckland Brewer

Church bells from St Mary and St Benedict, Buckland Brewer.

This week's Bells on Sunday, comes from the Church of St Mary and St Benedict, Buckland Brewer in Devon. The church contains a memorial plaque commemorating the bells' notable founder John Taylor of Oxford, who for ten years had a branch of his foundry here. The six bells with the tenor tuned to G, were cast in 1899 and rehung on ball bearings in 1937. We hear them ringing 'Devon Call Changes'.
