St Mary’s Church, Bentley in Hampshire.

Bells on Sunday comes from St Mary’s Church, Bentley in Hampshire.

Currently there is no ringing taking place across UK towers, a situation not encountered since the Second World War. This morning’s recording comes from St Mary’s Church, Bentley in Hampshire. The tower contains a peal of six bells. Two were cast by Samuel Knight in 1703 and four lighter bells were cast by Gillet and Johnson of Croydon in 1912. The Tenor weighs twelve and three quarter hundredweight and is tuned to E. We hear them ringing Double Oxford Bob Minor.
