St Nicholas in Harpenden

Bells on Sunday comes from St Nicholas in Harpenden.

Bells on Sunday comes from St Nicholas in Harpenden. The church tower contains a ring of eight bells, cast by John Taylor’s foundry at Loughborough in 1990 using metal from six of the earlier ring, which dated from 1612. The tenor weighs just over fifteen hundredweight in the key of F sharp. The old tenor and fifth have been retained as Clock and Sanctus bells and are hung above the new ring of eight. We hear them ringing Stedman Triples.
