Bells on Sunday comes from All Saints Church, Wigston Magna, in Leicestershire

Bells on Sunday comes from All Saints Church, Wigston Magna, in Leicestershire. The present building dates from the 14th century and by 1790 there were five bells which were subsequently augmented to a ring of eight in the 19th century. In 1922, a completely new ring of eight bells were cast by John Taylor of Loughborough and mounted in a cast iron frame. The tenor weighs sixteen hundredweight and is tuned to the note E. We hear them ringing Stedman Triples.
