Inventory Bells


(Reference: 5077)

Bells The Minster has 10 bells hung for normal full-circle ringing. They weigh a total of 4.3 tonnes, the tenor (the largest bell) weighing 18.25cwt and having a diameter of 4 feet. They are tuned to the key of E flat. They date from 1830 when three of them were cast by William Dobson, and several bellfounders have cast the rest since then, including John Taylor and Co and John Warner and Sons, the newest bells (the two lightest) being cast in 1962 by Mears and Stainbank. The ringers are Frank Kennington (captain), Matthew Jeffery, Lorraine Jeffery, John Cade, Jane Willerton, Kim Holland, Vic Pope, Neil Mangan, Joanne Smith and Bethany Chapman.
