Worcester Cathedral†BellsBells at Worcester Cathedral

The tower contains a ring of 12 bells, plus 3 semitone bells and a bourdon bell - a total weight of 16 tonnes. The 15 ringing bells were cast in 1928 from the metal of a previous ring by John Taylor & Co of Loughborough.

The Cathedral is unique in having a purpose-built Teaching Centre where people are taught on the 8 special training dumb-bells, linked to computers - a ringing simulator.
