Bells on Sunday comes from St Matthew, Chapel Allerton, Leeds.

Bells on Sunday comes from the church of St Matthew, Chapel Allerton, Leeds in West Yorkshire. The tower contains a peal of six bells cast by Taylor’s of Loughborough in 1946. They were hung dead – that is, not set up for change ringing – at the time and it was not until 1954 that they were hung as a ringing peal. The Tenor weighs seven and a half hundredweight and is tuned to B flat. We hear them ringing Plain Bob Doubles.
