St Lawrence’s Church, Towcester in Northamptonshire.

Bells on Sunday comes from St Lawrence’s Church, Towcester in Northamptonshire.

Bells on Sunday comes from St Lawrence’s Church, Towcester in Northamptonshire. The church’s large ironstone tower is a prominent feature of the Towcester skyline and has probably contained bells since its construction in 1485. The current ring of twelves bells were created in 1989, based on an 1897 ring of eight bells purchased from a redundant church in Todmorden in Lancashire and augmented with four bells cast by the John Taylor Foundry of Loughborough. We hear them ringing Spliced Surprise Maximus.
