Tewkesbury Abbey in Gloucestershire

Bells on Sunday comes from Tewkesbury Abbey in Gloucestershire.

Bells on Sunday comes from Tewkesbury Abbey in Gloucestershire. The central tower is one hundred and forty eight feet high and is the largest surviving Norman tower in existence. Up until the early nineteen hundreds there was a ring of eight, but in 1962 a new ring of twelve bells was cast and hung by John Taylor of Loughborough. The tenor weighs just over twenty seven hundred weight and is tuned to D. We hear the ten largest bells ringing Stedman Caters.
