St Lawrence, Alton, Hampshire

Church bells from St Lawrence, Alton, Hampshire.

Bells on Sunday comes from the parish church of St Lawrence, Alton in Hampshire. In 1926 the Croydon Foundry of Gillett and Johnston cast the peal, generally reckoned to be the best ring of eight in the county, and hung them in a new steel frame. The tenor weighs eighteen hundredweight and is tuned to E. We hear them ringing Bristol Surprise Major.
