St Mary's, Amersham in Buckinghamshire
Bells on Sunday comes from St Mary's, Amersham in Buckinghamshire.
Bells on Sunday comes from the church of St Mary’s, Amersham, in Buckinghamshire. Standing where a Roman Road crossed the River Misbourn, there has been a church on the site in “Old Amersham” since at least the mid 12th century. The current building, however, is a much altered 13th century structure, with a Victorian flint-clad exterior. In 1983, the old ring of six bells were recast and augmented to an eight, and hung in a steel frame. Ten years later, they were augmented again by Taylor’s of Loughborough to a ring of twelve bells, with a tenor weighing nineteen hundredweight in the note of E. We hear them ringing Cambridge Surprise Maximus.
