Bells on Sunday comes from the cathedral church of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Truro in Cornwall. The Diocese of Truro was established in 1878 and the building of the new cathedral church in the Gothic Revival style was completed in 1910. Originally there were ten bells cast by John Taylor of Loughborough. These were augmented to a ring of twelve with two semitones in 2011 making Truro the first and only ring of twelve bells in Cornwall. The tenor bell weights thirty three and three quarter hundredweight and is tuned to the note of D flat. We hear the back ten bells ringing Stedman Caters.
