St Leonard's Church, Streatham

Church bells from St Leonard's Church in Streatham.

Bells on Sunday comes from St. Leonard's Church in Streatham. Dating from about 1350, St Leonard's tower is the oldest structure in this part of London. In 1785 a ring of 6 bells cast by Mears of Whitechapel was installed. The present 8 bells with a tenor weighing twelve and three quarter hundredweight tuned to G, were cast and installed by the Whitechapel Foundry in 1981, following a fire. We hear them ringing part of a peal of Horton's Four Spliced Surprise Major.
