Bells on Sunday comes from All Saints, Daresbury

Bells on Sunday comes from All Saints Church, Daresbury in Cheshire. The parish is the birthplace of the author Lewis Carroll, whose father, the Reverend Charles Dodgson, was vicar there. In the ground floor chamber of the tower ringers can admire the west window, which depicts characters from the book ‘Alice's Adventures in Wonderland’. The tower dates from 1550 but the present ring of eight bells was cast in 1913. The tenor is tuned to E and weighs sixteen hundredweight. We hear them ringing a series of rounds and call changes.
