Made famous in the nursery rhyme ‘Oranges and Lemons’ as ‘the Bells of Old Bailey’ (which is across the road), St. Sepulchre’s has one of the most significant bell towers in the country.
The first ever ‘peal’ of bells was rung at St. Sepulchre’s in 1690, and the church has maintained an excellent ring ever since. In the mid-1980’s the bells were restored, and the original 10-bell ring was expanded to 12.
We are lucky to be one of the home towers of the Ancient Society of College Youths, Britain’s leading bell-ringing society, and have an active ringing community. If you would like to know more, or to get involved, go to http://www.ascy.org.uk/
