St Bartholomew the Great, Smithfield in London

Bells on Sunday comes from St Bartholomew the Great, Smithfield in London.

Bells on Sunday comes from St Bartholomew the Great, Smithfield in London. The tower has a ring of five bells, with the tenor weighing five and a half hundredweight. The church was originally founded in 1123 as an Augustinian Priory, and is fortunate to have five bells cast by Thomas Bullisdon around 1510, the only complete pre-reformation ring of more than four bells by one founder. We hear them ringing Grandsire Doubles.
