Bells on Sunday, which this morning comes from Howden Minster in East Yorkshire. The 135-foot-high central tower was completed around 1400, but a fire in 1929 resulted in the complete loss of the old ring of eight bells. A new peal of eight was cast at the Loughborough foundry in 1931 and they’re regarded as one of the finest in the country. The tenor weighs twenty two and a quarter hundredweight and is tuned to E flat. We hear them ringing ‘Stedman Triples’.
