St Vedast, Foster Lane, London

Church bells from St Vedast, Foster Lane, London.

This week's Bells on Sunday comes from St Vedast, Foster Lane in London. The tower, which was rebuilt by Sir Christopher Wren after the Great Fire, is one of the most graceful in London. Its six bells were destroyed when the church was again gutted by fire, this time in an air raid in December 1940, and a new ring of six was provided from Whitechapel in 1963. The bells are heard here ringing Cambridge Surprise Minor by a band of ringers based at St. Mary Abbotts, Kensington.
