The Bells of the City of London

The Rings of Ten

There is only 1 ring of 10 in the City, although there have been others in the past. Rings have either been augmented to 12, or have been lost. In the case of St Dionis Backchurch, the 10 bells here were transferred to All Hallows Lombard St in 1876, only to be transferred on to Twickenham when the church was pulled down in 1938.
